Ben Sollee - Words and Music - 2012

by Alisa Ali

True, Ben Sollee is a talented cellist from Kentucky, but he's also a singer-songwriter who loves to knock down walls and build unique songs from the ground up. He's done just that with some great players, including Abigail Washburn and members of My Morning Jacket, and on his new album, Half-Made Man, that thoughtful yet adventurous approach is on full display.

Both from the mountains of Kentucky, Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore decided to come together with another Kentucky native, My Morning Jacket's Jim James, to make the album, 'Dear Companion.' In a recent visit to studio-A they shared some songs with FUV's Alisa Ali, and talked about the threat of mountaintop removal mining on Kentucky's coalmining communities. (3/5/10)
