Ben Dowling, pianist and musician releases an incredibly unique rendition of “The Times They Are A-Changin’” by the great Bob Dylan. Known for his simplicity, his elegance, and his dedication to projects that are bigger than he is, Dowling is an artist who desires to see a change in the world and the people who inhabit it.
“Don’t criticize what you can’t understand…” lyrics from a song we all know very well, but only now do we truly understand and feel the message behind the lyrics. When asked about his inspiration for choosing to cover this old protest song, Ben Dowling mentions that what better time to cover a song like this, than right now.
Listeners notice many incredibly talented artists worked hard to help bring this track together, and when asked about his own tribe, Dowling says, “My people include my fellow Agape House Band members: Rob McDonald, David Neal, the inimitable Curt Bisquera and the soulful Joshua Sklair. When we work together—as is our joy—the world changes. When we create together, time shifts on its axis.”
We admire artists like Ben Dowling, who are using their music, art, and platform to help create change in this world.
