"SONGS & WHISPERS" - latest Release: Riddle & The Stars (AUS/USA)

Three continents, two bands, one album!
Riddle & The Stars is a collaborative project between the Australian singer/songwriter Ben Riddle and The Fallen Stars, an American rock band from Southern California. The three of them met each other on their “SONGS & WHISPERS” - CIRCUIT TOUR 07/2013 in Germany, where they shared an apartment and about half of the tour dates. They started to play music together, joined each other on stage and they really hit it off – musically and personally. On their last day in Germany Heiko Grein (the promoter from “SONGS & WHISPERS”) said: "You knwo we like what you du but we lovewhat you do together. I think you should make an album together we'll distribute it here and then come back and tour it next year." They left the meeting, and Bobbo said: “So I guess this is happening!” And an album name was born.
In November 2013 they met up in Southern California and created the album in 3 weeks. Through fundrasing they collected enough money to get the CDs pressed.
The last Fallen Stars album was very much big drums, and lots of guitar and organ on everything. Ben Riddle's last album was mostly him and his acoustic & his amazing harmonies and polyrhythmic beats so they all really wanted to find the common ground, the space between. Riddle had just bought an old Harmony tenor guitar and it became a muse for Ben with him writing two songs on it! Bobbo hopped on the pedal steel and created some atmosphere and Tracy locked it down to earth with her bass.
They found their sound. Call it Indie/Americana/Alt.Folk if you want.

“This Is Happening!” is a musical journey across Europe, America and Australia about the experience three travelling artists made meeting each other by chance.
