Simple, heartfelt, and well-executedBen Hurley's recording of "One More . . . (Song for Brian Lloyd)" is a simple, heartfelt, and well-executed acoustic ballad, honoring a late friend. The lyrics don't go into much detail about the departed beloved. On the one hand, this leaves the listener wondering what was so special about Brian Lloyd that he deserved a song in his honor. On the other hand, it lends the song a universal quality, so that it could be a fitting song for anyone's funeral, provided they were fond of alcohol and cigarettes. The guitar playing is clean, on a quality instrument, professionally recorded, and the tenor voice is clear and strong and pleasant to listen to. I would be interested to hear more from this artist.

Keep on writing and never stop creating as we all journey to our final destination, may we walk in Love and find it is all worth it in the end. God Bless yOu! Nice guitar playing, simple and yet it does the job! I hear a bit of celtic sound in your vocal, maybe a bit country! Thank YOU so much Ben for sharing!! Best! Rachel:-)
One more song by Ben HurleyBen has a pleasing singing voice that is pure and honest. The song is heart felt and sincere with gentle guitar that is well executed. The message is simple and to the point. A simple statement with just vocals and guitar is something I can really appreciate.
A Touching TributeThe tune here is a prime example of "Less is More" as it creates space for the song to "breathe". Thus, creating a space for the listener to ponder the relationship between friends. A pretty folk melody framing a heartfelt and precise poetic piece . . .
