Although it’s a so far very hot and dry summer, I couldn’t help but imagine feeling cozied up inside while it’s raining outside listening to Ben Reneer’s new EP release, “Ocean Avenue.” Ben Reneer has made some songs that just strike as thought provoking and creative, while also giving a very melancholy and emotional delivery that feels very relatable and easy to sing along to.
Ben Reneer teams up with other local artists like Katie Lee Cragun, Paul Woodward, and Savannah Keenan Kroff, to create a beautiful trilogy of songs. The lyrics fit the folky genre perfectly. The songs have string instruments, piano, acoustic guitar, beautiful harmonies, and a much too short banjo that appeared in the song, “Orange Avenue, “ that just had me craving for more.
Basically, if you never got matches on Tinder, if you had a bad break up, if you and your significant other ever had a rough go, listen to these songs, as Ben Reneer writes straight from the heart. If you just have a perfect life and perfect relationships, still listen to this album, so you can either remind yourself how lucky you are, or remind yourself what us normal people experience.
You can find Ben Reneers album on everything, from itunes, google play, and Spotify! He is playing at the Best In Music Acoustic Concert series on August 23rd, so if you love his stuff, he will in no doubt be promoting his music there.
All in all, the songs are eloquently and professionally put together, and Ben Reneer succeeds at reminding us what love and heartbreak really feel like.
