Today I’m introducing you to American composer Ben Thames currently living in the small rural community Chumuckla in Florida. Ben is a self taught pianist that have been playing for about four years at the moment.
The track Contemplation is taken from his latest EP, called Ferriday Blues which was released early may 2019.
Tell us something about your track Contemplation!
This one came together quite easily, as I find a lot of my favorite pieces usually do. I sat down at the piano late one night, with only a rough intro idea, & after about 3 hours the whole thing was written & ready to be recorded. I was struggling to come up with a title for it initially, but as I was listening to it, I found it reminding me of times of contemplation – specifically the ones where you just kind of sit around & reflect on life. So, that was the new title.
Thank you for this wonderful song, and this wonderful EP Ben!
