Ben Kweller

Ben Kweller (born June 16, 1981) is an American rock musician and former lead singer of the 1990s band Radish, which was compared to Nirvana in Rolling Stone Magazine. The band grew in popularity in the Dallas, Texas music scene from its formation in 1993. However, the band was dismissed by critics as little more than an imitation of Nirvana with the novelty of an extremely young lead vocal-guitarist (Kweller was in his teens for the entire existence of the band). Nonetheless, Kweller and his two bandmates, bassist Bryan Blur and drummer John Kent, were signed to a major record label in 1995 by Mercury Records. Regardless of a much-hyped beginning, which included appearances on Conan O'Brien and David Letterman, Radish failed to strike big success with either its first record Dizzy or its sophomore effort Restraining Bolt.

Solo career

Kweller began his solo career with his 2002 debut Sha Sha. The title track reconciles his past career efforts with Radish and the difficulty of finding an identity as a 20 year-old artist beginning a musical career for the second time. The record kept many of the familiar sounds of Nirvana, but also worked in other pop music influences such as Weezer and Ben Folds. The album grew in popularity with a grassroot effort with his website and a promotion group called TeamBK, which promoted word-of-mouth advertising. Kweller's second solo effort, On My Way, has attempted to match the modest but well-received popularity of Sha Sha while creating a more mature and subdued sound.

Kweller's second solo effort, On My Way, has attempted to match the modest but well-received popularity of Sha Sha while creating a more mature and subdued sound. A tribute to Lynne called Lynne Me Your Ears, was released in 2002, and featured two CDs full of artists performing Lynne/ELO songs, including Todd Rundgren, SWAG (featuring members of Wilco, The Mavericks and Cheap Trick), Sixpence None The Richer, Doug Powell, PFR, Fleming and John, The Balls of France (Jerry Chamberlain of Daniel Amos), Rick Altizer and others. The album grew in popularity with a grassroot effort with his website and a promotion group called TeamBK, which promoted word-of-mouth advertising. A tour and DVD followed. The record kept many of the familiar sounds of Nirvana, but also worked in other pop music influences such as Weezer and Ben Folds. Lynne teamed up with ELO keyboardist Richard Tandy to reform ELO in 2001 for an album called Zoom. The title track reconciles his past career efforts with Radish and the difficulty of finding an identity as a 20 year-old artist beginning a musical career for the second time. In February of 1994, Lynne fulfilled a life long dream by working with the three surviving Beatles on their Anthology album series, and reunion tracks "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love".

Kweller began his solo career with his 2002 debut Sha Sha. In 1990 he released the solo album "Armchair Theater". Regardless of a much-hyped beginning, which included appearances on Conan O'Brien and David Letterman, Radish failed to strike big success with either its first record Dizzy or its sophomore effort Restraining Bolt. Lynne was born in Birmingham, UK. However, the band was dismissed by critics as little more than an imitation of Nirvana with the novelty of an extremely young lead vocal-guitarist (Kweller was in his teens for the entire existence of the band).

Prior to Electric Light Orchestra Lynne was a member of The Move and Idle Race. The band grew in popularity in the Dallas, Texas music scene from its formation in 1993.
