“It’s from forthcoming album ‘The Old Hush’, an old term for what a witness is given to keep from testifying,” stated Ben Roque. “The album features a mad cast on a variety of backdrops. This song, ‘Off Your Tiltawhirl’, features the traveling gambler, a recurring persona in the album, who catches up with a circus.”
Teetering at the edge of rock, the collage artist and rock n’ roll musician, delivers in a swirl of tension that is both immaculate and procured. A gentle flow of lyrical renditions, a period of calm and acceptance, render you helpless, as the the ingle ‘Off Your Tiltawhirl’, hinder your notion for staying down and out.
You rise, as the song helps you lift your spirits, to new and renewed hopes.

As California goes into lock down mode, and the likelihood of cutbacks at my day job rises, I thought I'd put a humble request out there. It turns out @bandcamp is waiving their transaction fee for one day, today, Friday, March 20, to help artists through this shit. It's a small gesture, but significant, since they are the only streaming platform to offer any break at all. So if you can and feel inclined, please help out an artist or two. My discography, which includes five records and seven new tunes (which will be on the next full length), is available at the link upstairs.
