My friend, Ben Rector, is in the midst of releasing his new album, Songs That Duke Wrote. Since he is not yet signed to a record label, this album release is semi-gradual; albums can be bought at his shows and eventually on iTunes. Check out his myspace here. Also, you can read about the adventures of recording an album on Ben's blog. He stayed at my apartment while recording in Dallas, so I had a chance to share in some of the adventures - one of them being a trip to Fuel City for tacos and the Texas State Fair. Though I think that adventure came a few days after he had finished recording.
