BEN BARNES interview: Songs For You
Actor, Singer, Songwriter Ben Barnes releases his first EP “Songs For You”
Fans of BEN BARNES all over the globe know him as Prince Caspian from The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Billy Russo from Marvel’s The Punisher, Logan from HBO’s Westworld, and Neil McCormick, Bono’s best friend in Killing Bono. More recently, he stars as General Kirigan in Netflix’s #1 show, “Shadow and Bone”. After years of being directed, written for and edited in movies and television, Ben just released (Oct 15, 2021) his new EP, Songs For You, lovingly crafted at his piano at home and presented unedited and straight from the heart.
About Ben Barnes
Ben Barnes is known to many for portraying fantasy heroes and comic-book villains, characters from history and classic novels and the occasional romantic street busker or wannabe rock-star. His own fantasies, stories and dreams have until now been eclipsed by these roles.
With Songs For You, Barnes is baring his soul through his music for the first time; hopeful, joyful, passionate, nostalgic, vulnerable and loving. The lyrics to most of the songs, he explains, came from “poetry written for a loved one or just for myself, a long-forgotten phrase I jotted down in a notebook years ago, inspired by a photograph, a moment, a quotation, or in the case of one song, a story I read about a female pirate!”
He sent his songs to veteran producers John Alagia (Paul Simon, Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Herbie Hancock) and Jesse Siebenberg (Ke$ha, Miranda Lambert, Neil Young, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald), who are proud to have helped orchestrate the ‘70s-style, rich, entirely organic instrumentation on the record. As evidenced by the lush strings of Oliver Krauss to the throwback brass and raw bass and drums (played by Paul Hamilton, a musician friend of Barnes’ who appeared as a band member in the musical film Killing Bono in which he starred in ten years ago!).
The single, “11:11,” is a track that could not be contained to one genre. The soul-pop vocal soars over a jazzy piano, sacred-feeling organ, Queen-inspired guitars and a bursting “Penny Lane” piccolo trumpet fanfare. As Barnes reflects, “I’m fascinated in acting by the duality of people, and that we all have the capacity to feel everything and more than one emotion at a time. I feel that way too about my songs. Even if they seem to be about one thing, I’m interested in conflicting emotion and transitional feelings… the in-between. ‘11:11’ is about real love; the kind of love where you would give up all your wishes for the one you love to feel whole… even if it costs you, even if they can’t ‘be yours.’”
About the EP title, Barnes shared, “Songs For You comes from one of my favorite records, ‘A Song For You’ by Leon Russell (but the Donny Hathaway version, of course), from wanting the songs to speak intimately to anyone who listens to them, and because if a song is written for you, you know who you are.”
Ben Barnes has starred in films, TV shows and theater productions spanning the last 20 years:
Movies have included, The Chronicles of Narnia franchise (Disney), Seventh Son (Universal), Dorian Gray, Easy Virtue and musical films Killing Bono and Jackie & Ryan.
TV shows he has appeared in include Shadow & Bone currently streaming on Netflix, Westworld (HBO), Golddigger (BBC) and The Punisher (Netflix).
Stage productions include The History Boys (National Theatre) and Birdsong (West End).

FOGHAT 50th Anniversary – Interview with Drummer Roger Earl
Roger Earl is the drummer and a founding member of Foghat. The band formed in 1971 and has achieved eight gold records, one platinum and one double-platinum record. Their amazing hits include Slow Ride, Fool for the City, and Stone Blue. They just released “8 Days on the Road” a live album celebrating their 50th anniversary. Roger joins me today to discuss his music journey, including Foghat’s latest music.
Foghat celebrates their 50th anniversary this year, and their live performances show why the band is still around and why they will be able to keep on rockin’ as long as they want to play! Their music is timeless, and touring is part of their DNA. Foghat’s live show is as intense as ever with the incredible energy and musicianship that one would expect and hope for from a seasoned band with such a long musical history and they are bringing their fans along for the ride. These guys just love to play! They just released (Summer 2021) a new CD/DVD/Vinyl performance of their live show at Daryl’s House Club from November 17, 2019, entitled 8 DAYS ON THE ROAD!
Foghat fans are everywhere and their audience consists of all ages. From the young who play Guitar Hero III and know all the lyrics to “Slow Ride,” to the Dazed & Confused generation of 30-40 somethings and the “boomers” who bought Foghat’s first vinyl or 8-track! Looking out at the audience and seeing all generations rockin’ to Foghat is very gratifying to the band. According to lead singer Charlie Huhn, “The band just wants to make sure that after every show, they are all convinced that they just got rocked, from the second we start the first song to the end of the show.”
Formed in 1971 when Lonesome Dave Peverett & Roger Earl left the British blues-rock band, Savoy Brown, Foghat has earned eight Gold records, one Platinum record and one Double-Platinum record. They continue to release new music every few years and have never stopped touring and recording although there have been several ups and downs and changes over the years. They sadly lost Lonesome Dave Peverett in 2000 and Rod Price in 2005, but Roger Earl keeps banging and kicking to keep Foghat’s musical legacy going.
Roger Earl is still hammering away….still a noisy sod. And this rock’n’roll, road-warrior wouldn’t have it any other way. He says, in the immortal words of Lonesome Dave Peverett, “I’m gonna roll til’ I’m old, gonna rock til’ I drop!
