Harper has a long track record, having collaborated with blues harmonica player Charlie Musselwhite, the blind singers of Blind Boys of Alabama, forming several bands including The Innocent Criminals and Relentless7. In 2010, he joins Dhani Harrison, son of George and American musician Joseph Arthur under the banner Fistful of Mercy. In 2011, Ringo Starr produced two songs from his album Give It Till It's Gone. In 2013, he released the album Get Up! on the prestigious Stax label and on which Musselwhite appears.
With his Weissenborn or lap-steel guitars that he lays flat on his knees with the strings up to better manipulate them, not to mention the "bottleneck" style that he practices to excess, Ben Harper is a musician out of the ordinary, inventive and essential. Event!
