He has just finished recording with electronic music artist Brava Kilo in Toronto where they electrified three of Ben’s songs -Boring People, Beirut, Beirut and The only thing that saves you (can you guess what that is?).

From there its a quick flight back to Edmonton then jumping in the car to Manitoba and the Trout Forest Festival in Ear Falls, Ontario followed by some gigs home through Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
