Just Confirmed: Ben Sollee

A few days ago Lexington, Kentucky’s Ben Sollee gchats me saying, “We had some schedule changes… want to do a brunch?”

It was easily some of the best news I’ve heard in a while.

You have to understand that this has been in the making for three years.  Ben and I have tried and failed 4 times to make this happen.  However, every time he’s in town, I go and support him.  I usually drag a few friends with me that have little or no exposure to his music and they all leave the venue as fans.  He’s an exceptional self-managed musician who’s genuine and thankful for everything he’s achieved.

I describe Ben’s music as Appalachian Soul Folk.  Check out his NPR Tiny Desk Concert below to hear what that sounds like.
