Even in the more recent years of his career, local favorite Ben Kweller has had some trouble shaking the “wunderkind” label. And for good reason: his talent led to an impressively quick and early rise to popularity, and that popularity has refused to fade away. Of course, his ascension to his current status isn’t the only thing that’s impressive. Kweller plays a specific blend of indie rock, folk and country that makes his music very unique. He’s released 6 solo albums and a smattering of other compilations. Ben Kweller will be performing at the Austin Music Awards Wednesday 13th at 7:09pm. Listen to his live performance on here on KUTX 98.9 RIGHT HERE!
