An extremely original and literate acoustic rock band from Philadelphia, playing Americana tinged stompers that owe as much to the jug band tradition as to electric rock roots. First time in for these folks, but we're guessing not the last!
Ben Carroll’s soulful, powerful voice lives somewhere at the crossroads of Stevie Wonder and James Taylor—he’s captivating, distinctive, mesmerizing. With the help of his accomplished acoustic guitar playing, he moves his audiences with his plaintive songwriting. A soul and folk artist at once, Carroll has steadily toured North America and Europe as a solo act since 2004.
