There are times when a band’s songwriter comes up with music so personal, it defies categorization to the point that it doesn’t quite fit under the band’s moniker. This is the way Ben DeHan, approaches all of his songwriting, and it’s the reason that he releases music under his own name. After a stretch playing with American Diary and a subsequent hiatus, DeHan returned with a newfound energy as a solo artist. Since then, he and his wife, collaborator and cellist, Lauren have worked hard to establish the authenticity and versatility of their pop-punk act. Learn more about the duo’s journey and new EP with contributing writer Charlie Maybee.
