More Like You - Performed by Ben Harper

I’m bouncing around the system as it’s trying to figure me out. I just want someone to risk it and hear what I have to say. I am not a victim just

you and cry like you. I’m more like you, wouldn’t you like to know? Not with a bang but a whisper, all the foundations fell. As the old guards protested,

"Let's go, Ben," his bandmate, Dhani Harrison, says as he skates by, a blur of fluorescent pink and hair. "One more try," Harper says. "I've got this." One more try, and he makes himself an honest man. "I was getting nervous being put on the spot," Harper says. "It's like I'm at the X Games."

Skate session over, Harper kick-pushes toward the recording studio, where Harrison and singer-songwriter Joseph Arthur are already setting up to begin rehearsing for their first live shows since forming the band Fistful of Mercy this summer. When the trio first debuted their nine-track album, "As I Call You Down," at a listening party here at Hot Records in Santa Monica in August, one question permeated the room. What possibly brought these three guys together? "Simple," Harper says. "Skateboarding." more»
