HEAVY COLOR is a future beat / psych jazz / hybrid-electronic ensemble that blends traditional music from around the globe with modern afro-beat and psychedelic pop music.

In May of 2015 Ben travelled to the Eastern borders the Democratic Republic of Congo to collaborate on a forthcoming album with local musicians in support of the NDARO Cultural center in Bukavu (a safe center for youth to learn music, dance and art) and the ongoing efforts of ON THE GROUND an NGO focusing on gender equity and sustainable community development in farming regions around the globe. Their last album “Arise Ye Spiritual Machine” was an exploration in re-contextualizing obscure bits of archival music into a modern beat-tape format. On the forthcoming Soft Light and River Passage, they have further deepened their connection to live performance and composition to create a their own world to deconstruct and re-form.
