"I'm...just a singer/songwriter." The phrase brings a dozen hackneyed clichés to mind. Balding thirty-something doing his best James Taylor impression for a disinterested scattering of coffeehouse dwellers? Pierced, braless revolutionary spouting misogam

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bio (from the press kit):
"I'm...just a singer/songwriter." The phrase brings a dozen hackneyed clichés to mind. Balding thirty-something doing his best James Taylor impression for a disinterested scattering of coffeehouse dwellers? Pierced, braless revolutionary spouting misogamy to a crowd more concerned with politics than pop? Over-privileged college kid weeping his suburban blues to an audience who had to sneak out of their bedroom windows to get to the show?
If the textbook "singer/songwriter" is described as any combination of the above, then Ben Walker is anything but. Ben's music-simple, intimate, yet delivered with all the force of a full band-eclipses the term or any other. His lyrics focus on the universals of humanity: life, love and experience; never gratuitously self-indulgent and always heartfelt. Musically, Ben's mix of strong melodies, unconventional structure and sensitive storytelling makes him the equal of modern songwriters like Jonah's Onelinedrawing and Bright Eyes.
Ben began playing music as a teenager in hardcore and punk bands around the Columbia, SC area. However, he continued to nurse his more reflective side, being influenced by everyone from Pedro the Lion to Johnny Cash. Eventually, the songs he wrote for friends became more and more popular; they demanded more, and with their encouragement he began playing solo shows. Since then, Ben has won local acoustic competitions and gathered a devoted, earnest fanbase.
Ben now plays shows both solo and with Ben Walker Radio, a project fleshing out the songs with keyboard, bass and drums, and remembers his hardcore roots by playing in The Silent Anthem, which also includes members of other Columbia bands. All three bands are available for shows in the Southeast.
