Australian Guitarist Ben Craven Returns With 2018 Career Retrospective THE SINGLE EDITS
Australian guitarist/keyboardist/composer/vocalist Ben Craven continues on a mission to bring his music to the ears of progressive rock audiences far and wide. Progressive rock fans who might have missed Ben’s last opus, Last Chance To Hear, will be pleasantly surprised by the concise nature of his 2018 album entitled THE SINGLE EDITS.
THE SINGLE EDITS showcases Ben’s finest moments from his solo output, both rock vocals and rock instrumentals, compiled and re-imagined as single edits. A good bet for radio as Ben takes his greatest moments and edits them timewise into bite-sized chunks of sonic majesty. Although a 24-bit, 96kHz lossless download was released in late 2017, in early 2018 a special edition of THE SINGLE EDITS is available on compact disc, complete with folder artwork and multi-page booklet.
- Clocking in at 41 minutes, the eleven track CD of THE SINGLE EDITS features a cross-section from Ben Craven’s album releases and is brimming with fascinating musical ideas.
- THE SINGLE EDITS includes several remixed, edited prog-pop tracks from Ben’s first solo album Two False Idols.
- On the track “Spy In The Sky Pt. 3” Ben enlists the help of spoken work recording artist and Star Trek legend William Shatner and YES member Billy Sherwood on a track finished in L.A.
- All the music on THE SINGLE EDITS was superbly played and written by Ben Craven. Essential for Ben’s growing fan base, THE SINGLE EDITS is the most compelling musical statement yet from prog-rock sensation Ben Craven.
