Ben Harper

Ben Harper is an American roots musician who has stretched his appeal around the globe by recording covers of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ and The Verve‘s ‘The Drugs Don’t Work’.

Harper’s first album ‘Welcome To The Cruel World’ (1994) was followed by ‘Fight For Your Mind’ only a year later. It was at this point that the word of Ben Harper began to spread.

Often touring Europe and other non-American territories, Ben Harper has created a dedicated following the world over.

One of his most successful collaborations happened with the vocal group The Blind Boys Of Alabama who he recorded the seriously groovy ‘There Will Be A Light’ with, in 2004.

Initially famous for his Weissenborn slide skills, Ben Harper has shown some serious talent on most guitars. His band The Innocent Criminals aren’t bad either!
