FILTER: ALL VIDEOS
Signed by Polygram in the heady post-Nirvana, anything-goes days, Radish were a garage-y power trio led by the young teenage Ben Kweller. Kweller's precocious songwriting talents and honest singing were impressive and garnered a lot of ink, but the band did not end up taking over the world, and dissolved in 1997. This freed Kweller to explore his muse as a solo artist, and he has since released a succession of critically acclaimed albums that combine melody-forward singer/songwriter fare with straight-up rocking. He has also toured and recorded with fellow songwriters Ben Lee and Ben Folds as, appositely enough, the Bens.
