Benjamin Lev "Ben" Kweller (born June 16, 1981)〔(【引用サイトリンク】title=Ben Kweller – Songs )〕 is an American singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
A former member of Radish, Kweller has released five solo albums and appeared on several collaborations.
Ben Kweller was born in San Francisco in 1981. In 1982, his family relocated to Emory, Texas, where his father, Howard Kweller, became the town's first doctor. In 1986, the Kwellers moved to the larger Texas town of Greenville.
Kweller was exposed to music at a very early age. Howard taught Ben how to play the drums when he was seven years old. For the next year, they would play together almost every night after Howard got home from work. Howard sang and played guitar while Ben played the drums. The duo played songs by The Beatles, The Hollies, Jimi Hendrix, and other artists of the 1960s. Howard is also a longtime friend of Nils Lofgren, a neighbor of his.〔This was mentioned during an interview with Marc Riley on BBC 6music on December 4, 2008.〕 Kweller has mentioned in interviews that meeting Lofgren greatly helped his exposure to music. When Kweller turned eight, someone showed him how to play "Heart and Soul" on the piano and the youngster immediately began to create his own songs using the same chords. By the time he was nine, he had a dozen original compositions under his belt and entered a songwriting contest sponsored by ''Billboard'' magazine, where he won an honorable mention.
