About Ben Harper
Ben Harper doesn't fit the mold of an artist who sticks to one genre of music. And that's perfectly fine for this singer, songwriter and guitarist who has covered everything from folk, blues and country to hard rock, jazz and reggae throughout his career.
At one point in time, an artist who was considered 'hard to classify' might not see his or her career last. Now, being pigeonholed into one genre is a practical death knoll in the industry. Most artists have adapted to 'cross over' in one form or another, and Harper's eclecticism has guaranteed his relevancy since the ink was dry on his very first record deal back in 1992.
Harper's early material, especially the stuff on his debut album "Welcome to the Cruel World," introduced him as a folk-rocker. He became known for songs like "How Many Miles Must We March," and "I'll Rise," but his sound changed again and again. There was the 1995 album "Fight For Your Mind," 1997's "The Will to Live" and 1999's "Burn to Shine," all of which moved toward a more electric, amplified sound. The 2003 disc "Diamonds on the Inside" was more worldbeat heavy, and Harper later collaborated with the Blind Boys of Alabama on an album of gospel songs, "There Will Be a Light," which reached the top of the Billboard's gospel albums chart and won a Grammy for Best Traditional Soul Gospel Album.
Harper's most recent album (his 12th in studio) was 2013's "Get Up!" on Stax Records. He continues taking his music to an ever-evolving fan base, and his records continue a run of commercial success in North America, Europe and beyond.
