Ben Sollee is like no other cellist/singer-songwriter you have ever heard! His style is a mix of the Appalachian music he heard while growing up in Kentucky to the R&B style that fits his soulful voice and thoughtful lyrics. At the heart of Ben’s drive is the desire to bring communities together with music and he likes the idea of doing good things with good people. These ideas have been well received by other musicians, as his collaborations have shown. Ben has shared the stage and/or recording studios with the likes of My Morning Jacket and Bela Fleck. Ben has also embraced the idea of slowing down to appreciate the communities around him, so he embarked on the “Ditch The Van” tour, where he and his crew ride their bikes (and tow their equipment) from venue to venue to take in the sites, sounds and people around them.
