Since their formation in 1993, the Innocent Criminals have been involved in most of Ben Harper’s projects. The band toured worldwide, earning legions of fans thanks to explosive live performances and a succession of acclaimed albums. What makes the band so unique is that they come from different places musically and complement each other. Since its debut album “Welcome To The Cruel World” (1994), Ben Harper has released an extraordinary series of records that set him as a singularly powerful songwriter and performer with range across multiple genres and an unmatched ability to blend the personal and political. Rolling Stone defined his songs as “jewels of unique and exquisitely tender rock & roll”. Entertainment Weekly praised his “casual profundity,” and Billboard said his music “reminds us of the power and beauty of simplicity.” Massive, international sold-out tours, Top 10 debuts in the US, Gold and Platinum certifications overseas, and a slew of TV appearances cemented Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals’ status as genuine global stars.
