With the help of a new Minneapolis-based label, Martin-Guild, Ben came to America and recorded his first full-length album ever: The Motor Car & The Weather Balloon. To bring his music to life, Martin-Guild engaged some of the finest musicians in the Midwest, including drummer Michael Bland, who, in addition to playing with Prince, has played for Johnny Lang, George Benson, Chaka Khan, The Dixie Chicks, and Soul Asylum.

Also credited on Ben’s record are Greg Inhofer, who played keyboards on Bob Dylan’s album Blood On The Tracks, and Badfinger guitarist — whose rich history includes playing with George Harrison on his award-winning solo album All Things Must Pass — Joey Molland.

The album was produced by Mark Healey (Badfinger) and the results are amazing. The line-up of musicians brought extraordinary talent and influence to the music. “Ben brings incredible power and raw emotion, as well as a remarkable ability to tell a story through each and every song on the album,” Mark said.

“He was a joy to work with.” Two of the album’s videos, for Stories in the Rain and The Girl Who Cried Wolf, were directed by Emmy-winning Dan Huiting. The Motor Car & The Weather Balloon goes to college radio and AAA in fall with the help of Tinderbox and Notorious Radio. Feature songs include Integration (Not Segregation), The Girl Who Cried Wolf, Stories in the Rain, and Shackles.
