Ben Harper Background
As a local of Pomona,

music store, The Folk Music Center and Museum. When he was nine years old, Harper attended a Bob Marley concert, an event
that helped shape and influence the young legend-in-the-making. Just three years later, Harper got out on a stage and played
his very first show, drawing from his musical influences like Marley, Taj Mahal, Leonard Cohen, and David Lindley. Throughout
his teens, he continued to refine his various instrumental skills, and soon became so highly admired that Taj Mahal sought
him out to invite Harper on tour with him.
Harper's career started to take off when he signed a lifetime recording contract
with Virgin Records, and later released his major label debut album, Welcome to the Cruel World, in 1994. After releasing
several records and touring extensively around the world, Harper developed a huge international fan base and became a widely
