Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals
Ben Harper has released twelve studio albums and has toured throughout the United States, Europe and beyond. He gained notoriety in the 1990s with albums like Welcome to the Cruel World and its follow-up Fight for Your Mind which were both certified gold. Harper has since become wildly diverse performer, collaborator, and sideman who has worked with artists ranging from the Blind Boys of Alabama and Charlie Musselwhite to John Mayer and Mavis Staples.

The sound emitted from Shakey Grave’s hollow body guitar, mildly distorted amp and suitcase drum belie the young singer’s lean frame. He fingerpicks while keeping time with a double-pedal kick drum, hitting a snare fitted into his suitcase drum and a tambourine fashioned to its side. Gritty groans and sexy moans carry his stories of both accepting and trying to overcome personal challenges masked with old-timey Western imagery. He has released three studio albums and five EPs to date.
