Celebrating the release of his sophomore album, ‘Better Human’, with his band and all of you beautiful people. This is going to be a special one.
Ben Kunder is the kind of guy you pray sits next to you on a long-haul flight. Affable, erudite, and full of riveting tales about the ordinary and the extraordinary — and the intersection where they converge — Kunder is a storyteller of the highest order. Better Human is due out June 29 on Comino Music, he’ll celebrate the release at the Monarch Tavern on June 27!
Better Human is a dazzling new album and confident follow-up to 2015’s internationally acclaimed Golden. Compelling themes like the birth of a child (Night Sky), the struggle for life balance (Fight For Time), the workaday reality propping up our outward façade (Hard Line) are all fearlessly explored on the 9 song-collection, with vocal assists from luminaries Oh Susanna, Jim Guthrie, Paper Bird/Bahamas singer Carleigh Aikins plus Sarah McDougall and Maia Davies, who, respectively, co-wrote Better Days and Fight For Time, the album’s meditative lead single.
