As recent as February 28, 2013 Ben Hanna released his debut album “We Were All Like Whatever” out of Boulder, CO. It has already caught the attention of both local radio and press. Jon Solomon of the Westword writes “The dude’s quirky as hell, and he’s got this deadpan talk-singing thing going on that’s part Lou Reed and part John Prine, with a little bit of Jonathan Richman tossed in. The great thing about Hanna’s vocal delivery and phrasing is that his lyrics, which are pretty damn funny and poignant, are front and center, whether he’s singing about eating $5 titty-bar chicken, going through a breakup, or a guy hiding dime bags in his gym socks”. Ben calls his music “post suburban Americana” and describes the sound to be something like “if Leonard Cohen sang Violent Femmes songs”. Hanna celebrated the release of “We Were All Like Whatever” with a party at local Boulder venue Shine, where he drew a crowd of nearly 150 people. Ben is now booking for spring and summer of 2014 both solo and with his band, The Ben Hanna Band. For all inquires please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
