Singer-songwriter Ben Rice refers to his music as Big City Americana; a nod to both his New York roots and guitar-centered songs. His debut solo album, Future Pretend, details joy, loss and ﬁguring out how to remain present in a fast-forward world. Ben is also a celebrated record producer and runs his own recording studio, Degraw Sound, located in Brooklyn. I ﬁrst had the pleasure of working with Ben when he produced my debut album, How to Be An Adult. [This episode features “Everything Changes” from Future Pretend in its entirety.]
A shout-out to producer/songwriter Gian Stone (Madonna, Jonas Brothers, Dua Lipa, Maroon 5) who I ﬁrst met at Ben’s studio and is mentioned in the interview. I previously interviewed Gian on TMT 217: https://open.spotify.com/episode/4NbWrl0G3lWEmNWXfqbQ5j? si=3mvcscMGTGGpZVxWhkgeWA
IN MEMORIAM: This month, two previous TMT guests passed away: legendary hip-hop photographer Ricky Powell (02/01/21) and gay pop icon Ari Gold (02/14/21). It was an honor to interview them. Additionally, Ari and I became friends when he asked me to produce his own interview podcast, A Kiki from the Cancer Ward. May they both Rest In Peace.
