On the Verge: Ben Sollee

At 4:15 PM each Tuesday, WERS brings you our On The Verge segment which highlights an artist we think is up-and-coming. This week’s artist On The Verge is the cellist, singer-songwriter, and composer Ben Sollee.

Ben Sollee was born and raised in Kentucky, where he studied classical music on cello from a young age. He played alongside Casey Driessen, Abigail Washburn and Bela Fleck as a member of Abigail Washburn & The Sparrow Quartet from 2005 to 2008 before going solo.

This year he has released two albums, a live recording, Live At The Grocery on Home, and a studio album, Half Made Man. He is currently touring and will be performing at the Brighton Music Hall in Allston this Thursday, October 18th.

Tune in this Tuesday at 4:15 pm to hear an exclusive in-studio performance and interview from Ben Sollee only on 88.9 WERS.
