Funky cool music to soothe your soul.

Ben Harper's music can hypnotize your soul into a tranquil state of bliss.  Very reminiscent of past greats with styles ranging from Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye and a splash of Cat Stevens/John Lennon.  But what makes Ben so great is the fact that he is totally original in his mixing of styles and subtle poetic vibe.  He can write the catchy pop song, but he can also deliver a masterful classic that will stand the test of time.  His last few albums prove that he is fearless; as he can change up his style from a reggae style to a singer-songwriter, to a bluesy poet.  His latest incarnation Ben Harper & Relentless7 is more of a return to some rock'n'roll and their album drops May 5th, 2009!  You have been warned!  And if you are coming to Austin for SXSW, catch Ben performing live as he is one of the big acts at the fest this year!!
