While performing in indie-rock group Hussies, new music group Screaming Plastic and noise-punk band Fifi NoNo, musician Ben Eisenberger also embraces the folk side of things. Hailing from Omaha, Nebraska, Ben is a solo singer-songwriter with a charming sound. Receiving coverage from publications such as Post-Trash, The Other Side Reviews and Americana UK, Ben is making waves on a national and international scale. The latest addition to his discography is the album Soloists, but we’re looking at the track ‘See You On The Other Side’.
Beginning his career in 2018 with his debut solo release Three Islands, Ben gained a reputation for warm, pensive tracks – ‘See You On The Other Side’ is just another testament to his unique style. A tribute to the traditionalist folk sound, the single is simple, soothing and flowing. While the track seems laidback it contains a seriousness, but hopeful seriousness, in the lyricism.
Touching on elements of personal relationships, ‘See You On The Other Side’ is a reflective and insightful exploration of uncertain love. Using a Willie Nelson melody, but with Leonard Cohen-esque significance to the brusque vocals, Ben sings about a love that may not succeed (based on whether or not the other party is willing to take him as he is without question).
Off the sophomore album Soloists, Ben elegantly merges his classical guitar training with a mature melody in ‘See You On The Other Side’. While the acoustic guitar may invoke folk sentiments, it is Ben’s warm, bold vocals that enhance the sophistication of the single. I don’t know too much about folk music, but I do know that I love Ben Eisenberger!
