Our first artist today is Northern Ireland's Ben Glover. Glover had just finished his law degree in Belfast when he decided to become a troubadour instead of a barrister. Still relatively new to the scene, Glover has already recorded or played with the likes of Vince Gill, Jim Lauderdale, Buddy Miller, and Mary Gauthier. Gauthier especially has taken an interest in Glover, naming him as the support act for her upcoming tour of Ireland & the United Kingdom this spring. Glover's third record, Before the Birds, is comprised of ten mellow mid-to-slow tempo tunes with heartfelt lyrics and a pleasing delivery. Highly recommended.
