American singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ben Harper plays shows in Cape Town, Pretoria and Durban next week – he’ll also be playing the coveted Voice stage!
Beginning with his 1994 debut, Welcome To The Cruel World, Harper released a string of eight studio albums over a decade and a half. His eclectic output encompasses blues, folk, soul, reggae and rock.
This extraordinary run, featuring contributions from the Innocent Criminals, established him as a singularly powerful songwriter and performer with a range across multiple genres and an unmatched ability to blend the personal and political. It also scored him seven Grammy nominations and three wins.
Among his accolade, Rolling Stone hailed his "jewels of unique and exquisitely tender rock & roll,” while Entertainment Weekly praised his "casual profundity," and Billboard said his music "reminds us of the power and beauty of simplicity."
Massive, international sold-out tours, Top 10 debuts in the US, Gold and Platinum certifications overseas, and a slew of TV appearances cemented Harper and the band's status as genuine global stars.
PLUS an exclusive 'THE VOICE SA' 2for1 Deal on Ben Harper General Standing tickets is available at howler.co.za/benharper, for shows in Cape Town 4th June 2019; Pretoria 6th June 2019. Tickets are limited.
