Baltimore based Alt/ Indie Artist, Ben DeHan, writes music you can connect to on an emotional level, akin to Third Eye Blind or Jimmy Eat World. Littered with moments of Catharsis, Joy, and Introspection, his music becomes a life soundtrack. As the guitarist of American Diary, Ben got his start on the Vans Warped Tour alongside bands like Angels and Airwaves, The Academy Is, and Matisyahu. Since then, he has spent countless hours writing and honing a sound that’s both accessible and intelligent and has begun releasing music and playing shows. Whether it’s a trip to the beach or driving through the mountains, these are jams to roll the windows down, sing out loud, and make memories to. Watch out for new songs and tour dates in the coming months!
This song makes one feel as if they are walking on the beach with loved ones, as the cover art suggests. While most people are stuck inside during quarantine, this song can make the listener feel as if they are adventuring all over the world with just the instrumental portion. It makes it seem as if all is well in the world, and we have found what they are looking for. Find out more about Ben here: bendehanmusic.com/

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.
This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
