If you recognize the voice of Ben Larsen, you are not mistaken. Larsen headed up the popular band Crow and the Canyon before going solo. Crow and the Canyon were more of an old timey, folk, bluegrass band, where his solo project has a lot more depth to the production. You still are treated to his unique brand of lyrics, but the vocals take an entirely new soulful characteristic. His new EP titled Drop will be out October 29th via Dutch Records. When asked the meaning behind the single here is what Ben had to say:
“Somedays is about living with constant worry and anxiety. But also about holding steady in hard times, trusting in those around you and remembering that we all deal with anxiety and worry sometimes. It’s about my journey but also a reminder to anyone who needs it that you’re not alone.”
After a stint traveling, Ben Larsen is back in his old stomping grounds of Portland, Oregon. You can catch him live at the dates below.
