Lee was born in Wales. He said he came to London to go to a friend's party and never went back. At first he was staying in hostels or sleeping rough until he got his break by taking part in a competition run by the magazine "Boyz" to find a gay boy band and won, the group was called "2wo Third3" (see entry here).
His life long ambition had been to appear on the television programme "Top of the Pops" which he did with the group. When the group broke up Lee turned to photography.
In 2005 he returned to music making and re-recorded two of 2wo Third3 songs under the name Cosmetic Genetics. "Now I Found You" which was retitled "(Kate), Now I Found You" and "Lovers and Best Friends" which had been intended for release on World Aids Day.
He is now recording as 4th Child.
Lee suffers from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder which he says drives his partner Mark mad at times.
