Ben Stalets resides in Toldeo, Ohio, a town inhabited by industry, fashioned by its factory ties, and shaped by its place upon the Maumee River. These industrial and geographical traits don’t just mold the locale but seep into the souls of this city’s inhabitants…and in Ben Stalet’s case, into the music they create.
Such is the case with Stalet’s new single “Lost”, an anthem for the escapist who was lured by the western winds, but now finds themselves coveting that familiar road back to his river city abode.
“Lost” is part of a larger six-track sum (five demos and this single) titled Lost Songs, an independent release that dropped digitally on November 9th, and showcases Stalet’s talent for the Folk-Pop melody, which is delivered in his whiskey-seared baritone, and includes backing instrumentals provided by Great Leaks folk luminary Ryan Servis of Jack and the Bear and more.
Stream “Lost” and be sure to catch Stalets on his current mini-tour.
