BEN SOLLEE



bensollee.com

Twenty-eight year-old cellist and vocalist Ben Sollee has an intriguing style and sound. His soulful voice can invoke the sweet, hushed subtlety of Jeff Buckley while his cello conjures lounge-y jazz clubs and intimate acoustic folk settings. But Solle can also play a perky, percussive style on the cello, which picks up the pace and lands his sound in the modern, amplified world. In 2005, Sollee joined with Abigail Washburn (banjo and vocals), Bela Fleck (banjo) and Casey Driessen (violin) to form The Sparrow Quartet. In 2007, NPR’s Morning Edition named Sollee one of the "Top Ten Unknown Artists of the Year". In 2010 recorded Dear Companion, a collaboration of three Kentucky bred musicians, Solle, Daniel Martin Moore and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James (who produced the album). Sollee also performed at Bonnaroo in 2011 as an individual act and sitting in with MMJ. As his career continues to flourish, we’re excited to have him land in Quincy this summer for a few days be with us at High Sierra.
