This past Wednesday, prior to his gig at Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, Ben Weaver and his touring cellist, Julia, were able to drop by the Little Radio studio and knock out a couple of songs before their load-in at the venue. I have been a big fan of Weaver’s music since getting turned onto him a little over year ago, and really cannot say enough good things about his new LP Paper Sky, which saw it’s release last week.
Weaver is getting ready to embark on a month-long European tour — do try and catch him if you can.
