We've had Ben Harper into the studio many times over his career, but this is the first time that we've had the privilege of meeting Ellen Harper, Ben’s mom. The occasion for the visit from Ben and Ellen was their new collaborative album, Childhood Home. It features 6 tracks written by Ben and 4 tracks written by Ellen. After listening to the album, it is clear that this is a very gifted family of musicians. Ben and Ellen Harper recently stopped by Studio A to share some of their music and to talk about the new album during this edition of FUV Live.
