And The New Effect

Wooden Comes Out January 13th. Watch The Video Trailer Now!

November 12, 2016

Ben’s debut full length album Wooden?is set to be released worldwide on January 13th, 2017.

Showing a noticeable shift in Ben’s music from straightforward jam-rock, Wooden is a string-fueled Americana exploration with shades of jazz, rock, and soul. Produced by renowned fiddler/mandolin player Ross Holmes (Bruce Hornsby and The Noisemakers, Warren Haynes and The Ashes and Dust Band, formerly Mumford and Sons) at The Bomb Shelter in East Nashville, Tennessee, the album features nine new original songs by Ben and an ambitious cover of “Things Happen” by southern California rock band Dawes off their 2015 album All Your Favorite Bands.

Featuring many of Nashville’s finest session musicians and performers as well as special guests that will be announced closer to the release date, Wooden is as varied as the influences of everybody involved with the record but has a recognizable sound from song to song that is fresh and new.

You can pre-order your CD copy now at and pre-orders will be available on iTunes and Amazon starting next month.
