Ben Lee kicks off his latest lap of the country this week. He’s playing shows in the capitals to promise the recent release of his brand new album Freedom, Love & the Human Mind.
This collection of songs sees Ben contemplating the human condition and his own experiences with characteristic eloquence and heart. The single “The Enemy Within” is an excellent example of the way Ben speaks for all of us who’ve ever wrestled with our emotions and place in the world. It features the talents of celebrated American folk artists Grant Lee Phillips and Sara Watkins.
“Like all the songs on the album, this recording began at my home studio in Laurel Canyon, CA, with a live guitar and vocal – no click track, no tuning, no funny business. Just me singing this song, from my heart,” Ben explained. “It was a beautiful thing to see it take life as I brought in other musicians to add to it, culminating in the incredible Sara Watkins adding her harmonies.”
There are still limited tickets for his shows available, but I wouldn’t wait too long to get yours!
