B.E. Godfrey (former frontman of doom-folk band listenlisten) was the solo project of NYC-based experimental folk artist Ben Godfrey.
In 2014, Godfrey released Wild Desperation (Chill Mega Chill/Very Jazzed, 2014), his debut solo EP, featuring collaborations with country legend Robert Ellis and Deep Cuts’ Chase Harris. Drawing on the dark lyricism of his work with listenlisten, Wild Desperation was a five-track EP chock full of elegantly stark instrumentation and ominous narratives about murderous men. Godfrey, now working under the pseudonym Belaver, is currently working on his debut solo LP, set to be released in late 2018.
