This week on The Malliard Report Jim features a guest that you may not have heard of, but you certainly have heard. The six-string slinger of Savage Garden, Tal Bachman, Lifehouse, and Elvis Monroe, songwriter, and producer Ben Carey. Ben joins the show today to discuss life as a touring musician, the struggles of the lockdown environment, and his experience during the infamous Route 91 incident.



Ben is an Australian guitarist that has played with bands such as Savage Garden, Tal Bachman, and Lifehouse. He also performs with Elvis Monroe with members from bands like Matchbox Twenty. From 1998 to 2000 Carey joined Savage Garden on their Affirmation World Tour as band guitarist, performing "I Knew I Loved You", "Affirmation", "Crash & Burn", and other songs. For a short period of time he played in the band Tal Bachman and is featured in the video for the hit single "She's So High". In 2004, Carey joined Lifehouse after the departure of Sean Woolstenhulme, brother of drummer Rick Woolstenhulme, Jr. In 2009, Lifehouse announced that Carey was an official member, stating he was "family to us". He featured in the band's videos "Broken", "Halfway Gone", "All In" and "Between the Raindrops" in 2012. In December 2014, the band announced that Carey would leave to focus on other projects, such as his band Elvis Monroe. Elvis Monroe released one single; "Blue Collar Man", which was the theme song for season 3 of TV show ‘Vegas Rat Rods.’"
