Ben Kweller, A Sha Sha Shining New Star

Dallas, Texas-based singer / songwriter Ben Kweller will release his debut album Sha Sha today (March 5) on ATO Records. The album, which will undoubtedly build on the starís growing reputation as one of todayís premier songwriting talents, showcases Kwellerís gift for weaving crafty wordplay, power-pop hooks and soaring vocals into a flowing sonic tapestry of pure listening excitement.

Did I mention that he has been playing guitar and writing songs since the age of eight, formed the band Radish (who released an LP on Polygram in 1997) at the age of twelve, and is currently only twenty years of age? Kweller will be crisscrossing the country with Dashboard Confessional through mid April, so don't miss your chance to check him out. Click more for details.
