The Innocent Criminals, a band made up of five other musicians, was formed by Ben Harper in the mid-1990s. The group will be featuring hit songs such as “Steal My Kiss,” “Another Lonely Day,” and “Diamonds On The Inside.” Through multiple album releases, stage performances, television appearances, and sold-out tours, Ben Harper and The Innocent Criminals established themselves as icons in their own funky way. 

Influenced by blues and folk music from a young age, Ben Harper started performing at age 12 and picked up different instruments such as the slide guitar, electric guitar, and acoustic guitar. Today, Harper’s style combines the different genres of blues, soul, funk, reggae, and rock, paired with his energetic and exciting stage presence. Harper has released 14 studio albums during his career and won three Grammy Awards®.
