Ben Harper News!

 

 

 

Summer is just around the corner and it’s time to get your alt rock/gospel/reggae/post-grunge fired up.

 

By Nancy Dunham

Ben Harper and Relentless7 gave the folks at SXSW a taste of the band’s debut album White Lies For Dark Times, and those that heard it say they’re chomping for more of the hard hitting sound with the hot beats – consider the sound something akin to rock with an ample dose of Delta Blues mixed in.
As a “new band with new opportunities and new energy” drummer Jordan Richardson says the band will build its base the old-fashioned way – from club dates.

The 11-song album is out May 5 but check out the new music live at the following gigs:
