Artist Interview: Ben Kweller

Ben KwellerBen Kweller is a fall-back artist.  I know that sounds like a bad thing, but it is in fact the exact opposite.  He is one of those tried and true musicians that, no matter what, you can always fall-back on for great music time and time again.  His earlier albums had a Ben Folds-esque feeling to them with some very folky aspects closer to a Neil Young and some very alternative sounds closer to the Strokes.

We recently had the chance to catch up with Ben Kweller after a gig in Boston and, after popping a squat on the floor, got a chance to ask him about his upcoming projects and life in general.  We asked him about his recent album Changing Horses and the inspiration behind this folk, country, blues album as opposed to his earlier works that were more pop and rock oriented.

He was definitely one of the more quirky artists we’ve ever had the pleasure to meet.  He’s a very chill guy, but has an energy that surrounds him and his music that is hard to describe, but easy to love.  Find out why we love Ben Kweller, and why you should too.
