Artist Spotlight: Ben Rector

I've been following this artist for a few years now. I had the pleasure last weekend to see him perform live at the House of Blues in Chicago. The show was fantastic. For our Really Scary Movie series, I featured one of his songs (briefly) in a short video. I wanted to share the song with you. 

I think in general you could use the term "light rock" to label Ben's music. So if you are into that kind of thing, I suggest you check it out. His album Into the Morning is my favorite. 

At his show, Ben was collecting money to help build wells in Africa in connection with World Vision. His plan was to donate every dollar he made selling his CDs to build the wells until they were completely paid for. He even had a donor willing to match every dollar made. Awesome. 

The guy makes great music and supports a great cause. Check him out
