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.)
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.
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!
Guess what! I've finished a new album!! Pretty cool right? (I hope you agree with me, otherwise, um, well, this is awkward.) It's called She Doesn't Believe Me. You can stream and/or download the album by clicking on the great big "MUSIC" tab at the top of the website, or you can trot over to my CDBaby Page to purchase a physical copy. I'm really proud of this one, I think it's the best we've done yet, and I can't wait to hear what you guys think of it. Happy listening, friends! - bcf
Look Ma, I done got interviewed! Ahead of the new album release, I chatted it up with Becca Marx at Rift Magazine. I talked a little about the new album, being married to a fellow musician, growing up in Iowa, surviving cancer, all kinds of fun stuff! You can read all about it RIGHT HERE!
