Lovely Acoustic Rock from Ben Howard
It’s tough to find classic Folk-Rock nowadays. Many artists have left their backyard deck’s and their music roots in an attempt to enter mainstream music. This new wave of acoustic rock seems pretentious and thin on the ears.
United Kingdom native, Ben Howard, is the backbone to this decade’s acoustic-guitar driven music. 2011′s Every Kingdom went under-the-radar, and I only have myself to blame for that. Regardless, his lasting offering, the Old Pine EP, reminded me to not make that mistake twice.
It’ll be pretty difficult to not put Ben Howard‘s soft-tunes on repeat once you give him a listen.
