Turned on to the likes of Sturgill Simpson’s early band “Sunday Valley” Ben could see a new musical journey on the horizon. “I had to go back and remember what drove me when I was younger; the likes of Drive By Truckers led me to Jason Isbell’s music and thus another huge change in my mindset and how it would impact song writing” recalls Ben. A mixture of the old and new. The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Jerry Reed leading him to Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton and Blackberry Smoke. Ben’s most recent work included the release of his first record “Troubled Times”. It is a compilation of life experiences and those that have touched him. This music resonates within Ben Jarrell and he is sure that it will resonate in you.
