Cool people I met – Ben Phan

© John Gellman

Some of the most serious hikers in Asheville choose to trek the entire Appalachian Trail. Not Ben Phan. He hiked the entire Pacific Crest Trail with his backpack and a small guitar, entertaining hikers and others along the way, while writing songs inspired by his experience. Now he lives in the Asheville area and records his music with his band, The Soul Symphony. We have been Facebook friends for a couple years, but had never actually met until today, when Ben stopped by my Flatiron Studio for a portrait. Ben Phan & The Soul Symphony are releasing their second album, “fear is the teacher” very soon. An album release show is scheduled for June 10th at Isis Music Hall in West Asheville.
