Ben Harper Shows Support For Instrumental Guitarist Jason DeGeorge’s Cover Of “Nothing At All”

 Ben Harper showed his support for instrumental guitarist Jason DeGeorge today as he featured DeGeorge’s rendition of his song “Nothing At All” from the Ben Harper & Charlie Musselwhite album No Mercy In This Land as his “Cover Of The Week” on his official Facebook page. 

According to DeGeorge, his version of “Nothing At All” shows a much more intimate side of his repertoire and one that he says is the “most expressive melody [he’s] played on guitar.”

“Jason is an incredible guitarist. Catch him live in NYC or surrounding area any chance you get. He’s currently got an album’s worth of new material and plans to release his next single in late Winter/Early Spring,” said Harper in his post. 

The original version of the song was written and recorded by Harper and iconic blues harpist Musselwhite in 2018 for their collaborative album No Mercy In This Land. DeGeorge says the song immediately resonated with him and he knew he wanted to cover it as it was not a “typical guitar song.” 

“Ben Harper is such an amazing songwriter. The feel and performance of the original version of the song just stuck with me,” he said. “The melody would stay in my head. It didn’t take long for me to realize that my connection to this song wasn’t just as a listener. I wanted to play this song. In my own way.” 

DeGeorge’s “All Or Nothing” will be available on all DSPs starting February 7.
