Ben & Ellen Harper Childhood Home

Intense, sometimes gloomy, painful…

Acoustic, while no electric instrument where used to record this Jewel. Ben Harper produced Childhood Home “like early Elvis,” he told Rolling Stone, after he and Charlie Musselwhite won the “Best Blues Album” GRAMMY Award for last year’s critically acclaimed Get Up!(Stax/Concord). “Not one thing is plugged in. It’s all acoustic. I think they’re going to call it ‘Americana,’ but it’s soul, California, folk rock, American.”

Ben Harper recently affirmed: “I’ve always figured home is where you run from, and then run to.”

Here’s a live version of Learn it all again Tomorrow, recorded live at the London Palladium on 27th April 2014 :
