Ben Reneer reminds us a bit of Joel Levi but with a more washy vibe and one of those laser falsettos. The lyrics are thick and the message is simple: love endures. It tortures and redeems our own motivations for living.
“Have you sold your wisdom for glory
will you let me sell mine for youth
now you whisper the journey’s not over
I rattle my cage on the edge of the truth”— Ben Reneer
Tag this one as Ryan Adams underwater.
Ben Reneer comes to us from Alpine, Utah. He considers himself more songwriter than singer but we beg to differ.
