Description

Ben Glover is from the County Antrim village of Glenarm in N.Ireland. He has been writing songs since being introduced to Tom Waits and Bob Dylan as a teenager. Having graduated in law at Queens University Belfast he decided to put his legal ambitions on hold to pursue a career in music. In the summer of 2004 Ben put together his touring band, The Earls and in spring 2006 the band released their debut EP The Ballad of Carla Boone. The record was released with very limited distribution but received great support at radio and press. The next step was to think about the album. Back home in Glenarm Ben flicked through his record collection, picking out his favourite producers and writing to them. JD Foster (Calexico,Richmond Fontaine,) immediately replied, loved the music and flew into Northern Ireland for a meeting. JD Foster and the band rehearsed for a week at Amberville Studios and he decided that he would like to produce the album. In August 2007 Ben Glover & The Earls travelled to Nashville to record the debut album in Studio A in Blackbird Studios. Thanks to JD Foster, and through his own Nashville contacts, Ben was introduced to many of Nashville s top session musicians and the very special guests on this album include: 21-time Grammy Award winner Vince Gill, John Deaderick (The Dixie Chicks, James Taylor), Willie Nelson s longtime harmonica player Mickey Raphael, pedal-steel guitar legend Al Perkins (The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, CSNY), Buddy Miller and Grammy Award winner Jim Lauderdale.
