This summer, acoustic rockers Dylan Connor and Benjamin Cartel are teaming up to bring their original, hook laden, Rock ‘n’ Roll music to the West Coast. Dylan and Benjamin figured they should join forces based on the fact that they can both quote the film This is Spinal Tapverbatim.

Dylan Connor used to front San Francisco power pop band M.Headphone, but moved back east in 2004 and made a solo record called Plug In with indie rock producer Bryce Goggin of Lemonheads, Ramones and Phishfame. His latest release is Spirit Glue, which was funded by his fans, has been compared to the Shins and Jeff Buckley.
“Connor has a broader worldview than most songwriters. He’s got an easy way with a pop hook and can be a ferociously incisive wordsmith.” (New York Music Daily)

Benjamin is sometimes half of the indie rock duo Kasier Cartel, who had songs featured on HBO series 'Bored to Death,' Josh Radnor film 'Liberal Arts,' a record deal with Bluhammock Records. Cartel, who sounds like John Lennon fronting Wilco, released his first solo LP, Gothenburg, in 2015. He has toured relentlessly since, and is currently in the studio working on his next LP.

“Benjamin Cartel’s songs can often conjure the same subliminal tension as that of a Randy Newman or John Prine” -.American Songwriter

Benjamin and Dylan will be backing each other up on tunes from their respective records; and who knows… they might throw in a Spinal Tap cover or two.
