Tulsa-bred, Nashville-based artist Ben Rector will be taking Music Farm’s stage during the Charleston stop on his mini-fall tour. Fresh off of a nice blazing of the trails with NEEDTOBREATHE earlier in the year, he’s taking the time to visit a few cities before diving into the recording of his fifth studio record. Two of his three already released albums reached the top ten on iTunes charts, the most recent of which, Something Like This, reached number one on iTunes’ singer/songwriter chart a mere five minutes after its release. His music has been featured on popular shows such as One Tree Hill and Pretty Little Liars. I would liken him to musical powerhouses Mat Kearney, Michael Bublé, Trent Dabbs, and Jack’s Mannequin. Yeah, big shoes and all that, but Rector is one of the few that deserves and is able to fill them.

It’s rare that an artist grabs my attention as quickly and thoroughly as Ben Rector has. His music is a melting pot of the best genres: jazz, alternative, pop, and singer/songwriter. Not only is the instrumentality fantastic, his lyrics and voice are amazing and downright swoon-worthy. He has such conviction in his music; his dedication and passion for it comes through very clearly across the recorded mediums. To sum it all up, he’s a midwestern tour de force. You’ll be sorry if you miss his show at Music Farm on Thursday.

As if you need any more convincing, scroll up to check out his amazing performance of “White Dress” at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center earlier this year.
