Rise and Run

Posted by on Jul 8, 2013

In his own words, Ben Ballinger seems to rather accurately describe what he creates through his music: Psychological folk blues. The indie folk songwriter and former Dalles frontman released an album in 2011 that’s still an Austin Music Minute favorite, Fabrication, covering a darker folk palate with tales and an ambiance that hold the heart in a tightened grip. Ballinger carries a heavy soul and a powerful voice.

Don’t miss Ballinger at an early happy hour performance tonight at 7 p.m. at the White Horse, 500 Comal St. Recommended.
