Ben: I'm hoping that some recent work with www.stopglobalwarming.org will alert people to the very real problems associated with warming and climate change.
Ben: I was exposed to everything from the classical to the Stones, and remember a lot of Beatles and The Shadows from my parents.
Ben: Pulse is the only song that addresses what I went through, but I can hear my sister over this entire album – I hear her in there.
Ben: Anyone who gets to make music for a living is lucky. And I've had that chance, but I had this certain concept in mind for my next record. I knew I could do it, but I knew it would take someone like Linda Perry to help me see it through.
Ben: My musical process is organic and emotional, I write songs about things that have stirred and inspired me, and I record when my feelings are fresh to preserve those emotions.
Ben: I don't write just one type of song. I write what I see, do, and feel. The blood boiling when you're angry, your pulse racing when you're excited - that's what's important. When I feel like that, the song already exists in my mind and I just start writing.
