GUEST LIST

VIDEO: Ben Kweller sings 'Holy Water'
By Kevin Coffey
WORLD-HERALD STAFF WRITER


In his 31 years, Ben Kweller has created a music career any other indie rocker could be jealous of.

A teenage stint with Radish got him started, but the Texan has rocked through seven solo albums, including last year's "Go Fly a Kite."

And now, Guest List is proud to debut Kweller's new song, "Holy Water." Stepping into Omaha's Slowdown venue, Kweller donned his leather jacket and strapped on an acoustic guitar to play the song, which he had never before performed outside of the studio.

"Holy Water" is set to appear on the soundtrack to the summer blockbuster "The Lone Ranger."

Kweller's song skills make him a rock music handyman to fix you up no matter what your musical mood: burning up the fretboard ("Rules"), piano pop songs to make Elton John jealous ("Jealous Girl"), anthem singalongs ("Penny on the Train Track") and vocals as sweet and sunny as a bowl of fruit ("Sundress").
