Symphony of Silence
Having taken a pause for breath after the heavy rock of Devoid, Ben Dalby is back giving his fans more of what they love him for in the form of a new album Symphony of Silence. Symphony of Silence is a musical mystery tour affirming the range and strength of Ben's compositional and performance skills. Drawing together experienced musicians from the pillars of music's foundations: rock, folk, funk, dance, and the blues, the listener is left with no doubt that, while he is a jack of all trades, Ben is undeniably the master of the intelligent lyric and a well seasoned producer of irrepressibly catchy tunes. Returning to the land of his youth, Symphony of Silence was recorded digitally in the beautiful countryside in and around Stratford Upon Avon. This setting infused these songs with sunshine and lightness, deftly combined with an earthiness that gives the album it's backbone. While this album is non-confrontational and accessible to all, it rewards it's discerning listeners with solace and inspiration - here is a man asking questions about what it is to be a man in the face of 21st century life - intriguing lyrics lovingly wrapped up in haunting melodies. Behind the scenes, Ben is nurturing his new lineup to take Symphony of Silence on the road. While drawing the best from the members of the band Ben remains the driving force behind their collaboration, thus ensuring the continuing integrity of the sound that is Ben Dalby.
