/ BEN CONNOR /
Soul-driven blues, folk, rock singer songwriter Ben Connor has been described as the musical lovechild of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and David Gray.
His debut album, 'Stone Fields', was released on 2nd February 2023.
Dark, with splashes of light, layered with instrumental palates and propelled by his special brand of husky baritone vocals, Stone Fields’s finely crafted songs journey through love, fatherhood, contemplations on mortality, majestic and mythical landscapes and more. And through it all Ben’s formidable guitar playing features, giving texture and tone and lilting and roller-coaster melodies as it croons, coos, screeches and screams to the accompaniment of a flawless rhythm section.
'Stone Fields' received positive reviews from publications such as popular online music and culture magazine Happy Mag and was syndicated across the country on the Blues, Roots N Boots show with John De Laurence. Australian music industry legend Stuart Coupe also premiered the song 'Sailor' from 'Stone Fields' on his show Dirt Music while other tracks from the album featured on community radio stations in the Central Coast, Byron Bay and South Australia's Limestone Coast.
Ben performs solo, with a full band and with his duo, Ben Connor & The Butterman.
For the first two sets of this gig, Ben will be joined by The Butterman.
For the last set, cellist Me-Lee Hay will join Ben for some covers and originals.
