LOCATION:Brooklyn, New York 11221
RELATED PROJECTS:
  • Ben Seretan and the Early
  • Jane Eyre
  • Fayaway
  • Blushing

Ben Seretan grew up in California, went to Wesleyan University in Connecticut, and now lives in Brooklyn. He plays the electric guitar, sings, and makes drones, or what he calls "long music." If Heaven exists, Ben wants to find it with delay pedals and join the chorus of angels. Repetition, loud stabs of waterfall electric guitar, sweet gospel melodies, and big warm swells of sound joined by frequent Jonathan Richman covers

Ben - who has played and continues to play in a wide array of bands - started performing solo in earnest in the spring of 2011. Since then, he has released three full-length solo recordings (New Music, New Space, New Song - a series) and a collaborative LP with Portland instrumental masters the Early (LPs available here). His latest recording, New Song, was released on November 16th, 2012.

Ben currently plays lead guitar (and wears a costume) for the garage/glam implosion Jane Eyre, lead guitar for crypto-jazz balladeers Fayaway, and is one half of the Badalmenti/Stars of the Lid send up Blushing. He also works at a movie theater.

Hello! My name is Edgar Nunez and I am an aspiring filmmaker. Recently, I made a short movie about Mars and was trying to find a suitable songs to fit to mood. When I came across "I saw the light", I found that it conveyed the emotion that I was looking for. I would love it if you took a look at the video and gave some feedback (also, you'll find that I gave you credit at the end of the video)!
