Stalwart bassist Ben Wolfe is proud to announce the August 30th release of his new album, Fatherhood – a heartfelt body of work which pays tribute to the bassist’s father, Dan Wolfe who passed away in 2018. This ten-track collection of nine originals and one cover also serves as a meditation on what it means for Ben to be a father to his own son, Milo. With Fatherhood, the bassist and composer made a conscious decision to step off the fast lane for a moment and make music of introspection and mourning. “I made this record in ways I knew my father would have encouraged” – that meant choosing the best studio, the best musicians, self-funding the entire project, and making wise decisions throughout.  Ben is thrilled to have this record brought to fruition by a collection of both familiar collaborators and young phenoms.
