Ben Becker: The Artist
Yes, I’ll disclaim that I’m biased right off the bat. But I’ve also been around music my entire life: signed to a national record company in the early 90s and toured as an artist for 12 years. My oldest son’s songwriting ability is remarkable for the age of 14. Coming off his July-released song on iTunes “Can’t Handle It”, this week Ben wrote a song for one of his best friends whose father was recently deployed to Afghanistan. The song is called “Baby Just Fall” and a video of the song is available for you to view.
The first verse of “Baby Just Fall”:
To see your broken smile
Tears my heart to pieces every time
Seven thousand miles
Separates your daddy from his child
so Baby Just Fall – I’ll be waiting here to catch you
Baby Just Fall – no matter how much your heart won’t let you
Baby Just Fall – I will be with you I’ll protect you
Baby Just Fall…Baby Just Fall.

Carnival Girl by Ben Becker
At 9, Ben wrote is first song on his own called “Carnival Girl” about a girl he met at the Butler County Carnival. The chorus sings “My Carnival girl, my carnival girl, she’s got me goin’ crazy like a tilt-a-whirl. My carnival girl, my carnival girl. I hope she takes another ride with me.”
