It's time to get deep and talk music with another incredible artist. Today we have Benjamin Grey, the lead vocalist and guitarist of the LA-based indie rock band Dear Boy, joining us for a special episode of Hanging On Sunset.
Dear Boy has been making waves in the indie music scene since their formation in 2011, with their dreamy, anthemic sound and influences from post-punk, new wave, and alternative rock. They've released several EPs and one full-length album, earning critical acclaim and a devoted following along the way.
In this episode, Ben takes us on a journey through the band's story, from their early days to their latest release, "Forever Sometimes." We'll dive into the creative process behind their music, the challenges they've faced as a band, and what's next for Dear Boy.
But this conversation went even deeper than just the music. Ben and I explored some philosophical subjects, discussing the meaning of life, the nature of creativity, and the importance of human connection. It was a conversation that went on for nearly 2 hours, and I was blown away by Ben's insights.
Also, quick heads up for all you music lovers out there. Tomorrow night, Tuesday March 21st, at Genghis Cohen, Ben Grey, lead vocalist and guitarist of Dear Boy, will be performing as a solo act. And let me tell you, you won't want to miss it. Not only is Ben a fantastic musician in his own right, but he's also opening for the incredible Scout Gillett, who we had the pleasure of interviewing on our podcast in our last episode.
So if you're looking for a night of great music, be sure to head over to Genghis Cohen tomorrow night and catch Ben's solo performance and Scout's amazingly raw set. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.
Now sit back, relax, and get ready for an unforgettable episode of Hanging On Sunset with Ben Grey of Dear Boy.
