PODCAST: Nini & Ben
Poignant songs and masterful musicianship come together in the music of Nini & Ben, a duo that accentuates its acoustic sound with gritty slide guitar and pedal steel.
Nini & Ben has spent years performing all over Europe and Australia, writing songs, and falling in love with the gypsy life style. Having been cowriters since their teenage years, Nini Fabi and Ben Gebert came to Berklee to raise their music another few notches, and it appears to be paying off. Two song of theirs, including this month's podcast feature, "Mother," are featured on the latest disc from Berklee's student-run Heavy Rotation Records. The group has just finished recording its first full length album at Avatar Studios, in New York, to be released in the summer of 2009.
Among the many shows Nini & Ben are performing this year are two events that are part of Berklee's annual Summer Concert Series.
