Premier Concerts + Manic Productions: Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals + Christopher Paul Stelling

  • COLLEGE ST MUSIC HALL 238 College Street New Haven, CT, 06510 United States (map)

It had been seven years since Ben Harper last played a show with the Innocent Criminals, so when the time came to reunite for a live tour the band—percussionist Leon Mobley, bassist Juan Nelson, drummer Oliver Charles, keyboardist Jason Yates, and guitarist Michael Ward—quickly discovered that Harper had more in mind than simply revisiting the group's prodigious collection of hits. In fact, Harper had been quietly amassing material for a new record, Call It What It Is.

The result is perhaps the proudest accomplishment of Harper's prodigious career. 

"The time we took with this record has let me look it straight in the eyes and say that I gave everything I could to it and that it's exactly the way we intended it to be. To be able to say that we've left no stone unturned just feels great."

For the legions of Ben Harper fans that have been waiting eight years for a new album with the Innocent Criminals, it feels even better.
