'We Can't End This Way'

There's a man on the corner
Begging for help
There's a man that walks past him
And he's drowning in wealth
Who doesn't understand
How disappointment destroys the soul

Every look of shame
Is a wound that will never heal
What has he done to deserve this
What have I done to deserve this more»

After more than two decades in the industry, Ben Harper still credits his Australian fans with the launch of his long and illustrious career.

Ever since the American singer-songwriter's popularity soared here in the late '90s, the country has held a special place in his heart.

''It was the first English-speaking part of the world that recognised the music I made as a large group en masse,'' he says.

''I really think that spread around the world in the way that nothing else could have.''

The songwriter makes his return to Australia this month to perform his first-ever acoustic solo tour.

An Acoustic Evening With Ben Harper will take in Canberra, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney - with many shows already sold out.

The intimate gigs promise to display Harper's range of music styles from southern gospel, '70s funk, blues, reggae, to straight out rock'n'roll. more»
