When I first heard Ben Rector (originally featured March 21, 2010) he was opening for Matt Wertz while also playing in Matt's touring band. It didn't take long to figure out that his days in the backup band were numbered. He is special. He has a great voice, a quirky style and his music was centered around some incredible piano playing, a nice change of pace from the more typical instrument of choice for singer-songwriters, the guitar. Ben's sound and music just keeps getting better and better and he's finally getting some of the attention he deserves. A few weeks ago he was iTunes featured "Free Single" of the week and they were offering his album as a pre-order. Well that album, "The Walking in Between" was released earlier this week and it is outstanding. Do yourself a favor and check out this incredibly talented artist! And if you get the chance to see him live (he's touring this Fall) do it!!
