This just in: Ben Shive is finishing up his first solo album, The Ill-Tempered Klavier, and you can help him out by pre-ordering a digital copy here.
We've been waiting for this news for a long time, periodically checking his semi-defunct website for updates. Ben is an amazing musician and songwriter who has been touring and writing with Andrew Peterson, another of our favorite musicians.
When I found out, I actually did a little dance. Seriously. The best part is that the digital release will take place on June 17th, the day before my birthday. What a great gift!
