Eight years after he began touring while at the University of Arkansas and two years after his first entry into the Top Twenty on the Billboard Album Chart, Ben Rector is back with a new album and is feeling Brand New (release date is August 28). The singer-songwriter's newest album marks a return to the spirit of his youth, when he was a music-crazed teenager playing guitar in his Tulsa bedroom.
The twenty-eight year old has since sold over 250,000 albums and 2,000,000 downloads. His four studio albums and 2014’s Live In Denver, have repeatedly put him on top of the iTunes charts, leading to sold-out shows to fans who sing along with every word in theaters across the country.
Filled with rich string arrangements, percussion, pounding piano chords and effortless melodies, his latest album Brand New sounds anthemic. At the same time, its message is both sincere and humble, anchored by songs that are honest and meaningful. It's pop music with a purpose.
