Ben Harper

Benjamin Chase Harper was born to a family of musicians on October 28th, 1969, between Claremont and Pomona, in the Inland Empire region of outer Los Angeles. Growing up in modest surroundings, Harper had a special sensitivity to social issues and the struggles of the marginalized.
His music is a soulful hybrid of folk, rock, blues, reggae, and R&B. But in the midst of this crazy blend, he stays true to his roots with an acute eye for social justice.
