Live Music in the Barrel Room with Ben Bostick 05.12.17

May 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Roofer, janitor, cowboy, Parisian freeloader, writer, singer. Beaufort, South Carolina is the place Ben Bostick comes from. He was born there, raised there, and then left there to look for something. He tried to settle into a whole lot of places–Minnesota, North Carolina, New York City, Nevada, Washington, Paris–but he found a good place to stay in the transient city of Los Angeles.

No matter where he laid his hat, he had his guitar with him to help him write songs about real life. Like Waylon, Kris, Johnny, Merle, Jason Isbell, and Sturgill Simpson, he steers clear of the glitter and tinsel that compose the false god of pop country. Instead he writes from experience, from the heart, preferring raw and ugly soul to polished fantasy. He sings in a broad baritone, loud enough to be heard over the drunks at any happy hour, and he picks his guitar in a way that can’t be learned outside the Deep South. But he contains multitudes, to which any human can relate.
