Ben Lear's Lillian

Submitted by Girlie Action Media on Tue, 10/04/2011 - 11:23 am

Ben Lear is the son of TV icon and activist Norman Lear (All in the Family, The Jeffersons) who recently released an album called Lillian.  It's both a love story, and a cautionary tale about plastic pollution in our oceans... set to epic, orchestral indie folk (think Sufjan Stevens).  Click HERE for an MP3 for the song "Scuba Lessons."  Ben recently did an epic, acclaimed staging of Lillian in LA featuring plastic bottle light sculptures, a gospel choir, costumes, and more - he's bringing the show to NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on 10/25.  Click the video above to see the trailer.
