Ben Rector has a theory: The beauty of life is in the ordinary moments. On his new album, The Walking in Between (August 20, 2013), he sets those ordinary moments to some extraordinary music. Over the course of the thirteen tracks on The Walking in Between, Rector reflects on life’s simple pleasures, offers a fresh view on matters of the heart, examines the pursuit of material wealth, and recognizes the importance of the subtle struggles and modest victories of everyday living. Produced by Jamie Kenney, Charlie Peacock and Rector himself, The Walking in Between is the first release on Rector’s own label, Aptly Named Recordings. The new set follows his previous two successful independent releases, 2010’s Into the Morning and 2011’s Something Like This, which together have sold over 70,000 copies independently. Both albums were iTunes leaders, with Something Like This reaching No. 1 on the digital retailer’s Singer/Songwriter Albums chart. Tracks from both albums appeared in multiple television shows, including One Tree Hill, Castle, The Neighbors, SportsCenter and Pretty Little Liars. Having toured consistently since his junior year at the University of Arkansas, the young artist has spent the past six years building an impressive fan-base that enables him to routinely sell-out clubs and theatres nationally.
