Ben Kweller

A lot of kids are raised in musical families, but few had the introduction to music that Ben Kweller had. Nils Lofgren was one of Kweller’s father’s buddies during Lofgren’s days with Bruce Springsteen. Young Kweller, not even old enough for kindergarten at the time, would try to be like the famous guitarist when he picked up his own toy version of the instrument. The San Francisco native is easily compared to early Bob Dylan, along with hints of artists like Cat Stevens and Tom Waits.
