Ben David with special guest David Huss (Indie Folk) $7
Friday, July 26 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Ben David is one of the most important new songwriters emerging from one of the most vibrant music scenes in America-Minneapolis. Minnesota has been the home to many of the last century’s greatest, like Westerberg, Dylan, Prince, and now, in a new century, add a new name, Ben David.
Ben hails from the prairie lands of southwestern Minnesota and at first his songs have the same unassuming quality of those long horizons, but slowly details emerge and coalesce into the sounds of longing, becoming, young love, heart break and surprisingly deep ten cent philosophizing.
Set in the rhythms of a self taught finger picking style reminiscent of Charlie Paar, or perhaps Mason Jennings, David’s voice reaches through your headphones and latches onto your mind with its unconventional range, emotion and naïveté. The songs take their time to unfold.
Far Off Gaze was made with John Munson at his studio in NE Minneapolis. It was begun as a demo project which turned into a record as Munson realized that here was a prolific young artist, on the cusp of greatness, and here was an opportunity to present him, raw, unvarnished and completely as himself. The songs were recorded to tape per Ben’s wish to hearken back to something essential and pure, complete with hiss and crackle.
So sit back and give a first listen to this, what will surely be only the beginning of your time with Ben David.
Suggested tracks: Blueberry Island, Continental Drift, Rosealene – John Munson
“David Huss is an indie folk singer-songwriter from the Twin Cities. His songs couple bright melodies and folky undertones with introspective lyrics that take an optimistic point of view. David’s songs tell stories that are inspired by a range of experiences; from worldly travels down to a single moment in time.”
“David Huss and the Headwaters is made up of David Huss on guitar and vocals, Lara Solveig on violin and harmony, and Wes Miller on percussion”
