ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ben Cosgrove has been writing instrumental songs since before he started losing baby teeth, and it's generally agreed that the music develops further and further with the release of each new CD. His latest effort, Kaleidoscope offers proof of Ben's breakthrough into the realm of definitive musical maturity, offering 12 (actually, 13) brand-new tracks with influences varying from pop to new age to rock to jazz.
Ben's music is also marked by the fact that he plays virtually every instrument on the album, an impressive feat considering the 20+ instruments that color songs like Treading Water or Undertow. In addition to serving as the album's sole architect and performer, Ben also helmed the record's production and art design.
Kaleidoscope sold 300 copies in its first 3 weeks of availability, and is being hailed as Ben's best work yet. Fans of the traditional new age piano music will find what they're looking for in songs like Treeline or Refraction, while Ben simultaneously delves into uncharted musical waters with songs like Mirror and Treading Water.
"The goal of the music," Ben says in an interview, "is to give you something to connect to. Instrumental music kind of has a leg up in that regard- it's designed for you to apply to your own life and your own experiences. If you can personally connect to my music, or anybody's art for that matter, it's definitely achieved the goal it was created for."
Ben also is an Aquarius and enjoys long walks on the beach.

I live in Ben's home town and had the opportunity to hear him speak and play a selection from his latest cd. He is an inspiration to young people and adults alike and his music is wonderful.

Carol Honan

Excellent!
I listen to this CD VERY often and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves piano, and music that really makes you 'feel' when you listen to it. I sit up and smile with some of the songs and I get a bit melancholy and relaxed with others. Each song brings out a different emotion and you can truly sense what this young talented artist is trying to convey. I am very impressed with Kaleidoscope and Ben Cosgrove.

Alex Ford

woah...hold on a second
now, now people, let us all clam down about this "kaleidoscope" I would not go as far as to say that this is genius but it does show some musical intellect. also, i was not mentioned in the "thanks" section of the cd cover. the "props" are not to you to mr. ben

Suck It Ford
I think it sounds GREAT but I think Ford's review was biased and retarded. Much like him, Ford don't review things until you review your life. GREAT CD Ben keep it up, very nicely written pieces! =D

David Berkeley

I love this CD.
I've been listening to this CD nonstop since I bought it. I wish I could meet Ben Cosgrove in real life even if I could just have a 5 minute conversation with him. He is so talented.

Allison Rumore

He is amazing!
Ben Cosgrove's new CD Kaleidoscope is his best yet. I really enjoyed every single song and I hope to be hearing more from him in the future. A +

David Francescone, the first

I've been to purevolume.com and listened to a few sample clips, and might I say, absolutely breathtaking. Ben Cosgrove is one talented individual. Be like me and buy it on Monday, I heard you might get a free t-shirt??? that's what I'm hoping for atleast.
