WE LAST heard him in a glorious bootleg recording with Missy Higgins.
Now boundary-crossing cellist and songwriter Ben Sollee is returning to Australia as one half of a duo with percussionist Jordon Ellis.
Originally from Kentucky, USA, Ben's cello is far from the classical background instrument so easily pictured.
Not usually imagined as a toe-tapping instrument, Ben's cello tunes are more indie folk than not and his smoky vocals match.
His shows are allegedly known for their intimacy - personal songs written and played with passion.
Ben's fourth album, Half-Made Man, provides most of the songs in his current set.
Check out Ben Sollee and Jordan Ellis on tonight at the Bellingen Memorial Hall, or at bensollee.com.
