Cracking the egg that is Ben Stalets is two yolks; The first is a Country tinged, folk soaked, lyrically driven song, The second is a sweaty, rock n’ roll rooted performance. However you prefer it, you’ll end up full.
Ben’s medley of soundscape allows him to open for a very diverse collection of critically acclaimed acts, such as; Valerie June, Whitey Morgan, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Local H, and Icarus Account. He’s also been a favorite at plenty of music festivals, among them, 2015’s Nelsonville Music Festival.
With releasing his newest album and stab at classifying his genre of music; Country Midwestern, and a month-long tour, Ben has had a big end to 2015. With the start of 2016, Ben is looking to show just how appropriate his latest album’s title is by kicking off January with a Midwestern tour. With an angle on his music based loosely on that of a Pot Roast as opposed to a drive thru meal – he may not be your next American Idol, but he’s got a Hank Williams howl and deep-rooted, sturdy fingerpicking style that make you feel like he’s telling tales as old as time.
