Ben Kessler


  1. 1.
    Good Enough
Ben Kessler blends soulful tradition, R&B swagger, pop charisma and singer-songwriter spirit with lush instrumentation and alternative adventurousness.
A gifted writer and producer, the Philadelphia-native possesses an instinct for infectious hooks and emotionally resonant arrangements. Kessler sings with an effortless, rough-hewn quality that complements his introspective, intimate lyrics. Drawing comparisons to Kevin Garrett, Tom Misch, SG Lewis, HONNE, Bon Iver and James Blake, Kessler’s music is simultaneously familiar and new. His ambitious productions float freely across traditional genre-boundaries, yielding a truly unique, modern listening experience.
After years of writing and producing for other artists in Nashville, Kessler found himself yearning to create in the very room in suburban Philadelphia where he started making music. And there’s some magic in that room. Kessler’s debut single, “Good Enough” is the first of a new batch of songs that the multi-talented Kessler has written, recorded and produced there. Released through his own label, VYB, Kessler’s memorable lyrics explore themes of self-doubt, love, vulnerability and self acceptance. Kessler’s vocal cuts through an unexpectedly rich combination of smooth synthesizers and intricate classical guitar arrangements. The song marks an exciting evolution in Kessler’s work.
