ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A top 30 hit is no small achievement, but considering Ben Green’s single "Two To One" off his eponymous 2002 debut was produced by the artist and released on his own label (distributed by Artemis Records), it was nothing short of a phenomenon.

Born and raised in New York City, Ben Green started playing piano at age 3 and writing songs by age 9. While attending Skidmore College, Ben played the folk clubs of Saratoga Springs, NY until the late, great Lena Spencer of Caffe Lena's encouraged him to pursue a career as a recording artist.

Several years of making demos and playing around NYC led to signing a publishing deal with EMI in 1990 and an artist deal with the ill fated SBK records. Ben enjoyed success as a songwriter, having his work covered by R&B great Buddy Miles and sax soloist Warren Hill. He also wrote and performed the title song for the Rob Lowe movie, "The Finest Hour." His songs have received significant airplay at various radio formats including, AC, Hot AC and AAA.

Ben’s new CD “World’s Fair” is an edgy follow up to his 2002 charting debut. Featuring performances by notable musicians and artists including Phoebe Snow, Chris Botti and Jerry Marotta, World’s Fair showcases many impressive collaborative talents. At times thoughtful and introspective, Ben nevertheless resists taking himself too seriously. "Broken Man", a song about domestic violence and codependence is balanced by "Supermarket Clams", a humorous look at clams that end up in shrink wrap at the grocery. Embellished by the horn and string arrangements of Rob Mathes, Ben’s new CD is a multilayered exploration of life and all its complexities.
