Ben Glover appeared in Ballymoney Town Hall two years ago as special guest of Anthony Toner and we are delighted to welcome him back following the release of his acclaimed new album “Atlantic”.
The music of Americana artists mixed with traditional Irish songs were the soundtrack for Ben Glover growing up in Glenarm. He relocated to Nashville in 2009 and immersed himself in the southern culture. He began exploring the locations that were closely associated with the music he grew up listening to.
In 2012 Ben visited the Mississippi Delta and was struck by the spirit of the area. It reminded him of Ireland and he was inspired to make a musical union between his homes on both sides of the ocean. Instead of recording in Nashville Ben decided to come back home and get as close to his roots as possible. The result of this homecoming is Atlantic and it is easily Ben’s finest record. Atlantic deals with many themes – place, growth, pain, love, faith, sin, redemption and ultimately homecoming – and the songs are evidence of a writer and a singer who has found his voice.
