Indie superstar Ben Rector is setting out on “The Old Friends Acoustic Tour” – set to bring intimate, acoustic performances to cities across the country. Rector’s musical career began 15 years ago, writing songs in college and touring the southeast in his Honda Accords. Since then, he’s become one of the most successful independent artists to-date and, with that, the creator of a highly effective career blueprint that continually leads to win after win. He’s amassed over a billion streams across all platforms; played live on several national television shows, including Jimmy Kimmel, Conan, The Today Show; and had his music featured in hundreds of shows, films, and ads.
At the start of the global pandemic, Rector found himself in a place where many artists did: reassessing his reasoning for a career in music. The internal prodding organically led him back to a seat at the piano in his home studio, where he processed his findings with the ornate-but-relatable lyricism fans have come to know and love. The end result is The Joy of Music, 12 tracks of evocative, piano-pop anthems that touch on family, fame and friendship. Full of collaborative surprises and showcasing a breathtaking evolution in sound and spirit, the Oklahoma-born star considers it to be his best work to-date.
Rector will be joined by Jody Searcy and Stephen Day who will perform individually as opening acts and together with Rector during the main event.
