Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals announce a short run of North American shows for spring 2017 and Orlando is lucky enough to have one of their dates! Who’s gonna be your date on May 1 at Hard Rock Live?! 😎
Lillie Mae’s Jack White-produced album FOREVER AND THEN SOME comes out April 14, 2017. Lillie is opening for Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals at Hard Rock Live Orlando on May 1 and I couldn’t be more stoked to have discovered her. Lillie Mae‘s compelling voice reels me in with feels like a young Carole King with a splash of Joni Mitchell.
Ben Harper has released 14 studio albums and three live albums since 1994. In 2013, his collaboration with Charlie Musselwhite, Get Up!, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues chart and spent 24 weeks in the Top 10. Ben Harper is a three-time Grammy Award winner, with awards for Best Pop Instrumental Performance and Best Traditional Soul Gospel Album in 2005 and Best Blues Album in 2014.
But Ben Harper bleeds much deeper than what’s on paper. He sings of great loss, loves, racism, takes stabs at politicians, and like to burn. And, he has a gap tooth, like this writer. 😉
Let us burn one
From end to end
And pass it over
To me my friend
Burn it long, we’ll burn it slow
To light me up before I go”
Herb the gift from the earth
And what’s from the earth
Is of the greatest worth
So before you knock it try it first”
