I bet some of you already knew who the mystery performer was last Sunday! Wisconsin Music Venture’s very own Ben Harold joined our series on October 18th. He performed some new music, delivered a great balance of charm and sarcasm, and gave us some much needed truth.
Ben Harold is an American singer-songwriter, musician, and multi-instrumentalist who combines rock, folk, and soul elements to create a unique yet familiar sound that draws people into his soulfully sung and well-crafted music. Solo or with his extremely talented touring band, “The Rising,” he is known for putting on shows that are filled with energy, passion and connection with the audience.
The day was rainy and cloudy, but Ben’s performance made us forget about that for a while. Ben shared the honest stories behind his songs which included the passing of a friend’s father and his own upbringing. He treated us to new music from his upcoming album–we are so excited for it!
First time comer Eddie S., appreciated that this “was in a very intimate arrangement with the Zoom meeting.” Eddie enjoyed “the ability to interact and ask questions throughout the concert and after the concert in a little hang setting.” The Zoom platform allows everyone to see one another and it makes us feel that much closer. Thank you, Eddie for supporting our Sunday Brunch Surprise Series!
Ben joined the WMV team a couple months ago as the Community Experience Orchestrator and his musician perspective has been exceptionally helpful! Please keep up with Ben Harold and his upcoming album.
