Ben Harper and his mother Ellen have collaborated to create Childhood Home (under Prestige Folklore), an absorbing, deeply personal collection of original songs. The ten songs on Childhood Home, six written by Ben and four written by Ellen, explore the intricacies of family life with honesty and generous intimacy. The tender, artfully crafted story sketches on the album are laced with an undercurrent of love, wistfulness and, sometimes, pain. Addressing a hometown audience, Ben recently affirmed: "I've always figured home is where you run from, and then run to." Ben and Ellen Harper find the circle unbroken on Childhood Home.
