Ben Rector (Falling In Love) 9.13.11

Biography

Rector is a 24-year old nobody. He's never been on a label, he's never spent a dime on promotion, he's never been on national television, and he's literally topping the iTunes charts. There's no catch; just listen to the music. With a rich voice and skillfully crafted songs that both befall his age, it's no wonder he's no longer a secret. In a world where everything ...

Editorial Reviews

2011 release from the singer/songwriter. Ben Rector's success has been remarkably quick: playing piano and guitar for only a few years, he has already released four albums, toured alongside Five for Fighting, Matt Wertz, Dave Barnes, and Ben Kweller, where he's played his songs for thousands of people and won fans in cities all over the country. A strong word of mouth buzz brought him across the country over the past two years, and to continued surprise, almost each and every show sold out. TV shows have also showed interest in Ben's indie rise, synching songs he has written in One Tree Hill, Drop Dead Diva, Pretty Little Liars, and more.

Here's guessing on Ben Rector's musical influences. At first blush, he's got the laidback vibe jam of Jack Johnson. On second listen, Rector's working on that jazz-influence that shows up in John Mayer, especially the work with the Trio.

But here's really what I'm guessing: Ben Rector's been listening to Bruce Hornsby. Not the well-known, "The Way It Is" Hornsby when he was working with the Range on an Americana kind of feel in that "Mandolin Rain." What I mean is that when Ben Rector sits down in front of his piano he's very influenced by Hornsby's jazzy jams of his later work.

2010's Into The Morning seems to outshine 2011's Something Like This. The previous album jumps out with its rhythms and variety. "The Beat" opens the album with a dance feel akin to Howard Jones played through that jazz-influenced Hornsby thing. The piano pounds out a urgency on "White Dress." John Mayer's back in the foreground of influence for "Out of My Head," which features some nice falsetto from Rector on the chorus. Then things move ahead in tight jazz rhythms on "When I Get There," rocking out, shimmying and shaking with just a touch of funk guitar and some nice organ work.

Something Like This, on the other hand, holds things back more, laying in the shadow of that John Mayer laidback jazz groove. It never hits a stride like "The Beat" or "When I Get There." The album does open with the horn-laden, New Orleans kind of feel on "Let the Good Times Roll," as if Harry Connick, Jr., showed up to give Rector a pointer. The much of the album stays in the same vein and doesn't show the ebbs and flows of Into the Morning.

I love pretty much anything that Ben Rector releases. While this album is not as good as his last release, it still does not disappoint. It is another album that helps you realize that we should all love life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully talented artist June 3, 2012

I first heard Ben Rector opening for my favorite band, and almost enjoyed his performance more! I was impressed with his vocal instrumental talent. I downloaded a few of his CDs the next day, and couldn't be happier with my purchase. His music is easy to listen to, catchy, and he shares a good message. You can feel the music move you. I would highly recommend his albums to anyone.
