Local multi-instrumentalist and composer Benyaro has been described as “punk-Americana” and “indie-acoustic soul power.” Ben Musser’s one-man band live show features him playing drums, percussion, guitars and singing, simultaneously, with no looping. He has toured extensively across the country and is thrilled to get back to performing live.

In advance of his show at the Center for the Arts on May 26, Ben Musser joined us in the KHOL studio to discuss the development of his one-man band, collaborating with other artists and how a personal battle with COVID-19 impacted his creative process.
