For the 18th time, the Austrian Music Fund has invited local music acts to apply for financial support for their production. A total of 90 musicians applied, of which 25 were selected. One of these 25 musicians is Ben Martin, who is no stranger to experts on the local music scene. With his various ongoing projects, he has been able to address quite a wide audience of different genres. “Born Under Dark Skies” is his sixth solo album, which he just recently presented to the public at the Waves Vienna Festival.
Now that fall has arrived, with the days getting shorter and chilled nights creeping in, the delicate melodies of “Born Under Dark Skies” form the perfect soundtrack to warm the heart and lift a melancholic mood in the cold season .
