In the latest edition of our No Country For New Nashville Podcast, we sat down with Ben Elkins, frontman of local indie/soul/afro cuban band on the rise, ELEL, to discuss basketball, philosophy, band history, plans for ELEL’s debut album, and more. Ben was also kind enough to perform two acoustic songs for us.
