"Few songwriters can convey the problems and feelings of everyday life quite like Ben Walz. He has a way of pulling you into a song with a catchy melody only to make you notice the message of the song more by the time the disc stops spinning. The directness of his lyrics as well as his musical diversity have drawn him comparisons to the likes of John Mellencamp, Jackson Browne as well as James Taylor. A comparison he relishes.
Over the years he has built a reputation as a great songwriter and a terrific performer with his live band where he blends his crafty writing with high stage energy. He has opened up for such acts as Lynard Skynard, Deep Purple Ted Nugett and Soul Asylum and has traveled as far as South America and Italy to perform.
This year Ben will celebrate another year of doing what he loves when he brings the past, present and future together to perform at the historic Thompson House with special guests The Webster Devoto Band and up and coming talent Eric Walz."
