With a mix of contemporary heartache ballads and a dose of alternative lyrical perspective, Ben Ballinger isn’t your traditional singer/songwriter. Originally from Oregon, Ballinger has carved out a name for himself here in Austin with a sound brings to mind the imaginative lyricism of Father John Misty combined with Blaze Foley‘s tone.
Ben Ballinger was able to stop by Studio 1A and played a set of some of his music for us. Ballinger will also be playing at The Sidewinder May 7th with William Elliot Whitmore so make sure to get tickets while you can! If you weren’t able to hear the live session, no worries, you can stream it right here on KUTX.
