Ben Sommers – Dark Blue Lullaby – Audio

It was back in 2011 that the alt-rock musician Ben Sommers from England was introduced.

Ben Sommers

From the forthcoming fifteen track LP Bits Of Pigs And Peaces, a follow-up to Avocado Chip, which comes out on the 9th March  – the sixth piece – Dark Blue Lullaby.

I am also given to understand a couple of new LPs are on their way – I will keep you posted with news.

For those of longer stay – you may also recognise the name Ben Sommers who has now just started, kindly, finalising the videos to accompany both the Indie Music Tips and A Conversation With… series.

The music features, not for the video support – as you know nepotism is not a strong point of mine – rather, for its intrinsic value and if you don’t find yourself joining in the stomp around the room, I think you are reading the wrong website.

Bits of Pigs and Peaces – Ben Sommers is available on iTunes.*

The bugbear of mine – owning your own website arose as we spoke about email marketing, distribution channels, pay per click advertising and more.

Corey Koehler can be found with his thoughts at Musicgoat.

With thanks as usual to William Street Strikers for providing the music.
