Ben Gortmaker Interview [HSC Podcast Special Edition]

Play

I’m very excited about today’s podcast, featuring my good friend Ben Gortmaker.

Ben just released an incredible album called All’s Lost, All’s Found. And the best part? It was all recorded and mixed in his home studio. Make time to listen to this podcast. You’ll hear some great music and interesting discussion.

Ben is an independent artist out of Nashville. You can find out more about him and buy his new album at his website:

www.BenGortmaker.com

Go there now. You can stream the entire record from his site…then, after you are blown away, you can buy it. 🙂
