BEN COOLEY HALL " Owning Up To A Life "
( Caunounicus Records ) 2009.


Modern songwriting/indie pop/americana/acoustic

Ben Cooley Hall is a singer/songwriter and artist with certain carearre behind. He was also a part of Boston based trio - The Mary Rellys.
His actuelle album from previous 2009 year, entitled " Owning Up To A Life", has showed his authors interests and creative views.
Musically, Hall combines elements of pop and americana, creating self-emotional atmosphere in each of 11 present songs. Some of his tunes posses late Beatlesque melodicity, some of them are influental by the acoustic/folk legacy from the 70's period. His mostly narrative melodies lyrically asssocate on love and positive vibration, but with also specifical ironical approches.His vocalization is authentocal, even that most of present songs were done in slower mid, rarely in mid-up tempo. A recomandable track from his album could be a third one - " After The Fall".
