Ben Sollee (feat. DJ 2nd Nature) “A Few Honest Words” & Tour

Ah, that Ben Sollee.  When he’s not beefing with Kanye or making Terry Gross gooey, he’s out there bringing music to the people like an ice cream truck filled with, uh, music.  Or a cello.  Or something like that.


Sollee isn’t just about 4 stringed instruments.  He just put up a video of his tune “A Few Honest Words” remixed by DJ 2nd Nature which instersperses Barack Obama’s words with the music and lyrics of Sollee.  And, we’re glad to bring it to you, free of charge here on ye olde internet:

Sollee’s tour kicks off on Nov. 1 right here in Louisville at the 930 Listening Room.
