Rolling Stone calls Lifeline, "…an acoustic soul stunner…a thing of beauty."

This is the way they used to do it.

At the end of a nine month European tour, Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals landed in a Paris recording studio and completed their new album, Lifeline, in just seven days. The result: a soulful masterpiece with beautifully direct lyrics, undeniable grooves and an effortless energy that recalls the best works of Otis Redding, Bill Withers and Beggars Banquet-era Rolling Stones.'s that good.

It's no surprise that most bands today don't record albums live, straight to tape, in one room, no Pro Tools, no auto-tune. There are only a handful of modern artists that can pull it off. Since Ben & The Innocent Criminals were so musically connected after such a long tour, they entered the studio immediately. And on a sixteen track tape machine and one full week in the City of Lights, they successfully recorded and mixed an album that will sit alongside all of your old favourites...just like a classic record should.

In Ben Harper's first ever seated theatre tour, the band will perform the brand new album, Lifeline, dig deep into Harper’s back catalog of soulful gems and they will feature songs from 2004's Grammy award winning There Will Be A Light.
