glassheart I am a slowly aging cripple who grew up in deep religion, long ago coming out of it, jaded and lost. Something about Ben's music resonates with the lessons I have learned, and the current shape of my spirit. His voice and lyrics just feed something I didn't realize was starving for such a feast. Favorite track: Deliver Me.

Oliver Schiller Reminds me a little bit of good old days with Tom Waits. But this should not be compared with Tom Waits! It is much lighter, there is less dirt and i think this album is much more accessible for the common taste. Favorite track: Belly of the Worm.

jeffreyjeff If you are a folk fan, or like any "roots" music-- particularly classic stuff like Stan Rogers-- you will LOVE this album.

Ben Caplan is a star who makes amazing music. I play this album on repeat. Favorite track: Birds With Broken Wings.

about

Ben Caplan Halifax, Nova Scotia

A charismatic charmer and a smasher of pianos. A madman and an earnest poet. A strummer of delicate chords and a lover of bent and broken melodies. His rough and textured tones cut through crowded halls; an enormous voice, roaring louder than raucous crowds. Once he has your attention, Caplan can croon smoother than a glass of single malt whisky, pouring beauty into a harsh world. ... more
