Ben Larsen

Folk, Pop, Bluegrass
Location: Portland

You may know Ben Larsen as the frontman for Crow and the Canyon or The Giraffe Dodgers. His solo debut is his most honest release yet. Utilizing Larsen's full musical palette, drawing from folk, bluegrass, chamber pop, and soul with a touch of psychedelia, the full-length LP features his four-piece band and local greats Tony Furtado, Paul Brainard and Tyler Thompson (Fruition). "Time" showcases a full string quartet and horn trio while "Seeds" finds Larsen with just a guitar and microphone. For fans of Paul Simon, Gregory Alan Isakov and Ryan Adams, check out the title track’s music video here and then celebrate the release of Turn at The Secret Society on Friday, November 30.
