Ben just keeps getting better. He's growing as a writer and a musician and it shows on this new EP. You won't regret getting on at the ground floor with this guy.

If this guy keeps plugging away one day he will get to open awesome shows for all of his heroes like Jack Ingram, Rich O'Toole, and Bleu Edmondson. They are the true greats in Texas music today, and he could be one day too!

'Gasoline' is a great representation of Texas Music. With an ideal blend of traditional country & new Texas Country, with classic & southern rock. All of the songs are originals and the choice of song orders allow for a pleasant transition of the softer songs between the livelier ones. Worth the gamble, check it out.
