✪ New Port by Ben OConnor (Acoustic)
This unplugged acoustic version of Ben OConnor's single, "New Port" was filmed in an old sugar ruin on the U.S. Virgin Island of St. John. "New Port" sings to the restless souls bound for the horizon... as being still quickly becomes detrimental to the spirit of a wanderer. While residing on St. John through the winter months of 2020, Ben performs this song to reflect on his current state of "in-between ports". From the small New England town of Newport, Rhode Island, this song not only serves as a travelers motivator but a reminder that there is always a place on the map to call home.
