I am SO EXCITED about this!!
Ben Sollee is coming to Mr Small’s Theater in May about a week after he releases his new album (out May 10). Ben was a musician that I thought I would never be able to see live since he usually only performs down south or pretty much anywhere other than Pittsburgh. Last tour, he went to each venue via bicycle, so obviously, Pittsburgh wasn’t an option. Check and see if he’s coming to visit anywhere near you.
Bret and I went through our Ben Sollee obsession during the fall after graduation. We listened to his Learning to Bend album from start to finish over and over again. The cello is such a cool instrument, and to watch Ben sing + play live would just be amazing . It’s hard to pick a favorite from the last album because all of them were so great. He also released an album with Daniel Martin Moore that was fantastic.
Some of my faves:
Ben Sollee – “It’s Not Impossible”
Ben Sollee – “A Change Is Gonna Come”
Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore – “Something, Somewhere, Sometime”
This just made my day a million times better than it already was.
I’ve also included two videos that feature songs from his upcoming album, Inclusions.
Ben Sollee – Embrace
Ben Sollee – Hurting
