This Summer marks the 10th anniversary of my record Albatross, and to celebrate, I'm currently offering it for the special Anniversary Price of $5, from now until September 15! That's like, what, two cups of coffee? A cup of coffee and a scone? Three Diet Cokes and a Cow Tale? Either way, it's a deal! Purchase the album HERE, and come check out the Albatross Anniversary Show on September 13 at the 331!
Hey guys! Welcome to my website! For those of you who don’t know me – I’m Ben! I’m a Twin Cities-based singer, songwriter, drummer, keyboardist and part-time Godzilla enthusiast. I perform out a lot, be it in service of my own music, or supporting other fine folk around town. In short, you’ve probably seen me, you might not know my name, and now you do! You can click on the links above to get all the fascinating details about what I’m currently up to.
Hey all! It's been a while since I've checked in with you, I'm sorry about that. So I recently had the pleasure of performing a Sunday service at House of Mercy in St. Paul, and for the occasion I performed a brand new song called "Holy Water." You can give the tune a listen HERE!! And stay tuned, we're going into the studio later this Fall to cut a brand new EP, which will include this very song. And you can say you heard it here first! Or, there first. And, you weren't really the first to hear the song. . . but all the same, you heard it early, and that's pretty cool!
Back in February, I taped an episode of The Naked Songwriter, a web series produced by Ozzy Dahlstrom and the fine folks at the Diverse Emerging Music Organization. The episode is now live, and can be viewed HERE!! (Fun fact - the episode was filmed at Orfield Labs, formerly Sound 80, where Bob Dylan recorded about half of Blood On The Tracks. Thankfully, I didn't learn this until after the fact, cuz I probably would have been a nervous wreck if I had known.)
The music video for "Run Around" was featured in this week's Local Frames - 5 Must See Minnesota Music Videos! Thanks to Jerard Fagerberg for the write-up! You can read the article (with accompanying video) HERE!
Thanks to everyone who voted! "Full Moon" was ranked #48 on 89.3 The Current's Top 89 Local Songs of 2015!! I know it sounds disingenuous, but it's the truth - I really wasn't expecting that. So, thank you. Very, very much. Check out the full list HERE!
