Local singer-songwriter Ben Hughes just added April’s segment to his monthly, yearlong project of releasing former, never-been-released solo material to his Bandcamp page.

Hughes shared that he recorded the tracks for One of the Lucky Few during a short period of unemployment in the summer of 2010, while a greater curiosity of those around him brewed. He wrote on his Bandcamp page:

I saw people struggling with regret, abandonment and poor self-worth. With empathy, I wrote in first and third person to encourage and relate to these different people.

On the 10 heart-wrenching tracks, you’ll hear Hughes rock out on pots, pans and countertops, basically “anything within reach.”

The observational quality of his lyrics during this time period is heard best on tracks like “Temperance,” and the title track.
