Who Is Ben Glover? 5 Things You Need to Know
Ben Glover might be a name country fans are already familiar with -- but, if so, get ready to meet a different Ben Glover than the Colorado-born Christian and country songwriter and producer. Irish singer-songwriter Ben Glover has tapped deep into his British Isle roots to merge them with his American music influences and deliver a Celtic-meets-bluegrass-meets-country sound that is uniquely his own.
Glover's new album, Shorebound (released on May 4), highlights his gritty singer-songwriter style, which memories of his fellow countryman Bono, with a little bit of Johnny Cash and Neil Young thrown in. Shorebound follow's Glover's 2016 album Emigrant but marks a turn in style for the artist as he emerges in Nashville.
"I’ve been fortunate to work with amazing, fearless artists who have allowed me to deepen and widen my creative process,” Glover says in a press release. “Shorebound features 12 songs, 10 of which were co-written with and feature the voices of some of my closest musical cohorts.”
