Dave and I go way back...and I've been a HUGE fan of his music for a long time! He's a super talented musician/songwriter/producer/composer. I hope you enjoy his songs/stories as well as his amazing live looping skills!
Ben Smith, Live at 435, Season 1, Episode 2. 18 years of friendship and music collaboration compressed into one 14 minute web video! I am so glad that Ben Smith was able to join me for Episode 2. Ben stylistically chose to play one of his oldest songs, "I Recognize Your Fist" and one of his newest songs, "Someone, Somewhere, Sometime." You can catch Ben live on Friday, May 23rd at The Flash in Kennett Square, PA for the Bob Dylan birthday bash show. You should buy his records at www.bensmithsongs.bandcamp.com and check out his website at www.bensmithsongs.com

I was so happy to have Kevin Manning, a new Philly singer/songwriter as my first guest! He is such an amazing talent! I've been a huge fan of his since he played me his first demos. His debut EP (recorded and produced by yours truly) comes out later this year. To stream & download the audio portion of this episode, follow this link.
