Jacksonville Beach, Florida-based Radical Face is primarily Ben Cooper, who is also one-half of similar quiet-is-the-new-loud duo Electric President. Both have inked deals with German label Morr Music. Highlighted with light orchestral flourishes and acoustic guitar, Radical Face's early recordings included an EP and an album titled The Junkyard Chandelier. In March 2007, Morr issued Ghost, a concept album about houses retaining memories.
In 2011, The Family Tree Presents: The Roots began a series of Radical Face albums based around a fictional family that spanned the 1800s to the present, a story that continued on the 2013 release The Family Tree: The Branches. A collection of unused songs from the Family Tree recordings called The Bastards appeared two years later, and in 2016 the epic concluded with The Family Tree: The Leaves. The latter became his highest-charting release to date, hitting the Top Heatseekers, Top Independent Albums, and Top Rock Albums charts. ~ Kenyon Hopkin
