London…Opening For Zac Brown Band!

I am excited to announce that I will be opening for the Zac Brown Band on July 1 in London, UK! The show is at the intimate O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire and is already sold out. However, if you’re in London, you can catch men earlier in the day at the Canada Day Celebrations, for […]

Driving and Driving, and into Day 11

I writing now from the car. Ryan and I are making our escape from Edmonton. In times like these, I am reminded of a great Geoff Berner lyric: I sneak into town and I’m gone in a flash / spreading my wisdom around like  a rash.   Since I last wrote we drove from Calgary […]

Ben Caplan @ The Rivoli, June 8 2013

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 – 10:10 PM AST How strange. How strange to be alive in 2013. The world is mysterious and bizarre, and I speak now only of the strange inconsequentialities of the surface.

With the sublime Jaron Freeman-Fox on violin, Bret Higgins on upright bass, and Rich Knox on drums. The rehearsal went better than I could have hoped, and it made […]

On the road again, with a computer!

This is just the first two weeks of my summer tour. Gonna be a big summer.

Hello dear friends and listeners, I am writing this note from a Porter Airlines flight from Halifax to Toronto. Yesterday I turned 27. That’s the year that the great rock stars die at. I hope no one calls me a great rock star this year. Eccentric beardo is good enough for me. It seems like […]

Summer Tour Dates

Right now, I am enjoying some well deserved time off at home in Halifax doing some writing, playing, and listening to a lot of music. And lots of CBC Radio too…. I don’t want this episode to end, but I am excited to get back into the road for my summer shows. I’ll be starting […]
