Ben Connelly - Over You Review

by Gary Schwind

.
I've noticed a trend recently. I'm see a lot of albums in which a singer-songwriter plays all (or almost all) instruments on an album. You can count Ben Connelly among that group. On Over You, Connelly plays everything except the drums and pedal steel.

The album begins with a pretty straightforward poppy song called "I'm Over You." It's a pretty simple yet catchy tune with a familiar theme: namely getting over a break-up. He has another good break-up song called "A Wedding Ring is not a Guarantee." "Little Lights Shining" has a strong Bakersfield sound complete with some excellent pedal steel.

Connelly is a strong singer-songwriter who writes poignant, pensive tunes that are very easy to listen to. He puts me in mind of singer-songwriters like Grant Lee Phillips and Gavin Degraw. He shows some pretty serious chops on the guitar on "There's a Girl." Overall, this is a solid album. If you like multi-instrumental singer-songwriters, give this guy a listen.
