Over the past decade Ben Kweller has established himself as one of the U.S’s most treasured songwriters. His critically acclaimed albums have surpassed half a million in sales, and earned him a die-hard global fan base to which he remains committedly accessible. His genre jumping blend of Alt Rock, Piano Ballads and Folk Music has captured the hearts of fans and critics alike.

Returning to Australia in 2012, Kweller will be playing gigs along the East Coast as part of the Hi-Fi Shoreline Series – a series of shows across The Hi-Fi venues celebrating the opening of The Hi-Fi Sydney.

In 2012, Kweller re-emerges with the album Go Fly A Kite, a triumphant debut for his own newly formed Austin based label The Noise Company, a label he hopes will “eventually help other artists achieve their goals too.”

From the first crashing symbol into the dynamic electric riff in “Mean To Me” to the closing upbeat declaration of “You Can Count On Me”, Go Fly a Kite encompasses all the many faces and talents of this illustrious artist that has made Ben a worldwide must see live act.
