Windows Wide Open was written and recorded at various places throughout Canada. More specifically at various locations around Toronto, an arts residency in San Isidro, Mexico, Wells BC, and North Bay. Site would be the largest influence in the stylings represented here, the compositions, and often the recordings heavily effected by the environments they were done in. Also embedded in these tracks are the beautiful performances of an amazing group of musicians:

A long awaited full length album Windows Wide Open will finally become available October 30th of this year. Released on ROARING GIRL RECORDS, a great independent label started by Miranda Mulholland, based out of Toronto, Canada. Here I am super excited to be working with the team at Roaring Girl, they are a lovely group of people! This release will be coupled with a fun concert in Toronto on at The Burdock, a great new listening room, inviting some of my favourite people who happen to be great musicians to join me on stage.
TOUR INTO THE MID-WEST+ MUDDY ROOTS FEST
Had the most beautiful time in the southern, rather mid-western USA touring and accompanying the lovely Dana Sipos. We played in Yellow Springs Ohio on the way down, one of the most quirky towns I've ever set foot in. Muddy Roots Festival was absolute fun-an-tastic craziness. Beautiful music, beautiful people, lovely team of organizers, appreciative and respectful crowds. There was only one golf cart accident, no biggie. Nashville also treated us pretty well, enjoying porches and great company!
2015 SUMMER TOURING
I was also out touring with Familiar Wild this past June and July in overseas. Double heading all our shows throughout the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. We played a huge variety of venues, but one thing remained the same, people love folk music over there and they treat musicians fabulously!
BENJAMIN HERMANN - THE MUSICIAN PART
Benjamin Hermann's music hits the sweet spot with folk music lovers. His newest album 'Windows Wide Open' released on Roaring Girl Records mixes subtlety and directness, blending distant instrumentation and strong finger-style guitar playing into a soundscape that compliments vocals delivered with careful nuance.
Benjamin Hermann is a songwriter and accompanist currently living in Toronto ON, working, performing, collaborating, and creating from this city as a launching pad. Originally from North Bay, ON, Ben has since lived in Whitehorse, YT, travelled through Germany and Russia, considering these Northern and Eastern places to be the source of his artistic considerations. Eventually Ben landed in Toronto where he came to study and continue his music career. Ben also considers himself a recording artist, mainly composing with guitar, voice, and piano. His newest release a full length album titled 'Windows Wide Open' was released on Roaring Girl Records in the fall of 2015 - MapleMusic/Fontana North. His previous projects include - 'Red Sky In Morning' from 2012, recorded in Old Crow, YT – and 'Will Return' from 2011, recorded near Ottawa, ON.
