Ben Arthur’s new release, Call and Response, is a collection of “answer songs” responding to other artists’ work. As well as responding to songs by the Rolling Stones (“Sympathy for the Devil”) and Bruce Springsteen (“Atlantic City”), Ben also wrote and recorded songs answering short stories by Joyce Carol Oates and Alice Munro. Ben even had the thrill of collaborating on songs co-written with bestselling author Jonathan Lethem (“Motherless Brooklyn”) and celebrated short story writer George Saunders.

Ben has released six previous albums and two novels, performed many times on national television and the internationally syndicated radio program Acoustic Café, and has shared the stage with artists including Dave Matthews, Tori Amos, Bruce Hornsby, Shawn Colvin, Toots and the Maytals, and Sophie B Hawkins.
