Artist Overview

Singer/songwriter Ben Harper, who hails from Pomona, CA, debuted in 1994 with WELCOME TO THE CRUEL WORLD. Harper's idiosyncratic mix of blues, folk, rock, funk, and reggae made an instant splash. His distinctive use of the dobro-like Weissenborn guitar became a key element of his sound. A few years later, Harper adopted a more turbo-charged heavy rock sound influenced in equal parts by Led Zeppelin and Seattle grunge, but his strongly lyrical songwriting and his band's famed live prowess continued to grow.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (8/11/95, p.53)
- "...Harper is rootsy and raw on his upbeat material. And when he slows down for a ballad, he displays a gift for subtle rhythms and intimate, whispered vocalizing that speaks volumes."

- Rating: B

Q (8/95, p.123)
- 3 Stars - Good - "...colours all his...themes--love, politics and religion--with unsettling guitar tones which range from suave discords to sheer noise. Harper's vocals being an impatient murmur, it's often as if Nina Simone's band had been joined by Neil Young on ARC-WELD. He's deep, powerful and original..."

Vibe (12/95-1/96, p.142)
- "...treks down the highway of social injustice, aiming to cast out the world's problems while ushering in sensitivity and understanding....merge[s] the rage of the '60s with the frustrations of the '90s. A hybrid blessed by tradition, Harper's sound has nothing to do with retroactivity..."

Option (1-2/96, p.97)
- "...Harper is a genuinely gifted young singer/songwriter/guitarist with serious ambitions in folk, blues, gospel and rock'n'roll..."
