Streaming live to Nashville from his bedroom in West Kelowna, Ben Klick is recording his first studio album.

“All the musicians are down in Nashville and I am here in West Kelowna,” said Klick.

“Because of COVID I was not able to go back down to Nashville this year, so I wanted to record a record and finish everything I’ve been doing over the last year and a half.”

Thanks to technology, Klick says it’s a smooth process.

“At this point, I’ve been able to set up a studio here at the house, literally in my bedroom, to record tracks, guitars mainly and my vocal tracks from here at the house,” said Klick.

The title track of the album, A Life Worth Living, has become a driving force in Klick’s life.

“The opening lyric of the song is ‘I am going to roll with the punches, I’m going to take whatever comes my way, let the man upstairs do the talking and live to die another day, for the rest of my life I am going to make a life worth living. And that’s what the entire record is encompassing. For the rest of my life, I want to make a life worth living,” said Klick.

Klick’s debut album won’t be released until June as The Record Shop Recording Studio in Nashville work to perfect it but to hold his fans over, Klick has released a single, Fishin’ Off the Moon.
