"Before the Birds" - Release date set April 4, 2011
Ben is excited to announce that his new album, "Before the Birds" will be released on April 4. The album, produced by Neilson Hubbard, features 10 new songs written or co-written by Ben and includes the highly anticipated "I Am With You."
"I feel as if it's taken three albums for me to finally step into my own shoes; to finally create a sound, which I feel wholly represents me. It's not as if my first two albums were very heavily produced, but by sound has naturally become more stripped back, less layered. I was very intent on making my vocal and the essence of the song be the focal point of "Before the Birds." This was my second album working with Neilson Hubbard and it's the most personal record I've made. Neilson creates such a trusting enviornment that allows for us both to throw out ideas and try new things. That relationship afforded me the space to explore and make the truest record of my career."
In support of this release, Ben will join Mary Gauthier for 12 dates throughout Europe starting April 28.
"Before the Birds" will be available through this official website, and online retailers such as CD BABY, Amazon, and I Tunes.
