Description: Ben Sollee is a young singer-songwriter, cellist, and composer who is known for his unique sound -- a mix of folk, bluegrass, jazz, and R&B. With a voice that complements his cello-playing, he is an artist that strives to stay true to himself through his music, his personal lyrics and his intimate performances. Sollee was first recognized in 2008 when he debuted with Learning to Bend, which gained him a place on NPR's Morning Edition's list of "Top Ten Great Unknown Artists" of the year. Now out with his fourth CD Half-Made Man -- an album that creates a deeply moving narrative of a man who is trying to figure himself out -- Sollee challenges himself to become more personal and adventurous with his music.
