It was the cat-poles around the lake at his grandfather's farm that inspired Ben Sollee's debut album Learning To Bend. The frailty of those awkward looking plants standing stoutly against winds that challenged even the strongest of nearby trees is an affecting metaphor for human struggle and perseverance. This idea is central to Learning To Bend. Key tracks on Learning To Bend include two reactions to the current political landscape, ?A Few Honest Words,? and an adaptation of Sam Cooke's ?A Change is Gonna Come,? in which Ben has written updated, politically relevant verses.
