Ben Barnett is a creative type, constantly drawing people toward him and re-forming his amorphous cell called Kind Of Like Spitting. Though he's the band's nucleus, Barnett isn't your run-of-the-mill lead-singing/acoustic guitar-playing icon. For one, he's not a very good singer. But audiences love KOLS because they're real. Theirs is a simple beauty, that of a child kicking around in the dirt in his back yard, singing for himself, slightly off-key and melancholy with an unpredictable melody.
