13 MP3 Songs
ROCK: Modern Rock, POP: Beatles-pop
Hailing from Annapolis Maryland, Ben's Bones have been playing their exciting brand of acoustic-pop-rock at many of the region's best clubs for nearly three years. They've opened for a slew of diverse acts, like say the Damnwells, the Gin Blossoms, Jerry Jeff Walker, Dick Dale, The Presidents of the United States of America and even that 80's outfit, The Church. With their upcoming trip on the ROCK BOAT booked, (they won a nationwide contest on https://www.tradebit.com for the last remaining spot on the ship) that list of band's will no doubt be growing fast.
Frontman Dan Haas has recorded and / or performed with such acts as David Mead, (members of) The Barenaked Ladies, Josh Rouse, Richard Julian, The Push Stars, Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks, Orleans, The Subdudes, Bill Mallonee, Swan Dive, Bill Deasy and Joe Pisapia (Guster).
Led by the unique songwriting and vocal abilities of Haas, the band has received heavy Baltimore/Washington and Philadelphia airplay on fine stations like WHFS, WRNR,WXPN and DC101. In November and December of 2003, they had the number one song on XM radio's Unsigned channel. In the last six months they've played all over Maryland and DC, as well as New York, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia. In the spring of 2003, the band sold out the Ram's Head in Annapolis (BEYOND Standing-Room-Only Capacity), a 300+ seat venue that hosts national acts. It was the largest crowd the Ram's Head has held in years.
The band's debut album "Wishful Thinking" was released on September 14, 2004. Producer Frank Marchand (Jimmie's Chicken Shack, All Mighty Senators) encouraged the band to focus on many of their up-tempo numbers for their debut and the result is an exciting rock-based recording.
The band consists of Dan Haas (vocals, acoustic), Jamie Watkins (drums), and Josh Chapman (bass), along with a slew of highly-talented guests who frequently join them live.
MORE REVIEWS OF DAN'S SOLO EFFORTS:
Alternately luxurious and gruff, the tunes absolutely glitter with intelligence and talent.
With intelligent yet whimsical lyrics, and an eclectic sound to match, Haas has definitely established his own style. He's got a low-tempo Guster vibe, the funk of Beck and the spunk of Ben Folds matched with the smooth acoustic stylings of John Mayer (and some tasty jazz happening sporatically throughout the rest of this masterpiece!). Yes, and a little Rufus Wainwright tossed in for good measure. This is the kind of artist you hear and wonder, "Why isn't he huge?"
Dan Haas is back with a new CD which has been pre-released to great local buzz. Every Dan Haas fan knows that he deserves to break in on the national level. This album of songs reinforces that proposition. All he needs is his big break with someone in the know
