"Ben Bedford has proven himself to be a truly inspired and talented storyteller? "wrote Arthur Wood in Maverick Magazine.

Illinois based Ben Bedford established himself as a songwriter in the tradition of musical icons ranging from Bill Morrissey to Woody Guthrie, casting individual people in the theatre of the American landscape. A true son of the heartland, Bedford dips into the deep inkwell of classic American literature and writes with the 'old soul' quality of his literary idols, such as John Steinbeck and Toni Morrison.

"Certainly one of the best young singer-songwriters working today." (Rob Adams- The Herald)
" ?with echoes too of Paul Simon's soulful songcraft and Loudon Wainwright's narrative force. "(Sue Wilson, The Scotsman Newspaper)

In May 2018 Ben Bedford was named a winner of the prestigious Kerrville New Folk competition. Thus joining the ranks of Robert Earl Keen, James McMurtry, Diana Jones, Anais Mitchell, Danny Schmidt, Jonathan Byrd, John Gorka and Pierce Pettis.

The Hermit's Spyglass was recorded in March 2018 with Grammy-nominated musician David Cain. The recording features 11 tracks of brand new material. 6 are songs and 5 are instrumentals. The Hermit's Spyglass is a magical day on the prairie with Ben and Darwin the cat!
