fall 2006: new album Over You in rotation on fifteen stations, Connelly's touring nationwide. The archetypal resonance of folk songs, spirituals, and fairy tales, the subtle power of lyric poetry, and a raw passion for rock and roll, all pour into to the indy-folk mold of Ben Connelly's records to form a beautiful, cracked, joyous, and troubling mess.

"Packed with a lethal dose of charm."
-St. Paul Pioneer Press, MN

“After the first lines I was sold…Connelly writes songs that glow after repeated listens.” -Chicago Daily Herald, IL

“A melancholy tribute to a backwards life. Connelly’s smart humor shines through.”
-Dayton City Paper, OH

"blessed with urgent musicianship, passionate vocals, entertainingly off-kilter compositions, and an overall feeling of immediacy."
-Nashville Scene, TN

“The incisive humor doesn’t overpower Connelly’s bright songwriting or able guitar.”
-Performing Songwriter Magazine,

“minimal and whimsical aching heart songs”
