"Indie roots project of seclusive Jackson Hole, WY musician announces the release of his third original full-length album, One Step Ahead of Your Past, co-produced with Danny Kadar (Avett Brothers, My Morning Jacket, Band of Horses) and recorded at the legendary Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville, NC and in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
One Step Ahead of Your Past is an audible journey down the periscope of Ben Musser’s young marriage and voyage into fatherhood, or in his own words, “a deeply personal collection of tunes from a period in which I became a husband and a father.” Filled with hooks both musical and lyrical, the songs explore the profound, vibrant, and mundane with humility and humor, acting both as mirror and prism of a life once out of site, but which now envelops the artist."
