Cloudkicker is an instrumental progressive metal band from Colombus, Ohio consisting solely of musician Ben Sharp. He has gained significant notoriety amongst the Internet music community, and releases all of his music for free under a Creative Commons license. He has released 8 LPs and EPs on his Bandcamp. Ben Sharp began writing music under the moniker BM Sharp, or Ben the Sharp, In 2005. He began releasing short, ambient tracks, for free download around once a week. A desire to write something "heavier and more in depth" led him to write a 15 minute song, which he performed with a small garage band. The piece was received well, encouraged him to continue.[1] He began releasing material under the pseudonym Cloudkicker in 2008, beginning with his first full-length album, The Discovery for free. He borrowed the name from the character Kit Cloudkicker on the TV show TaleSpin. He followed this album up with three EPs: The Map is Not The Territory, Portmanteau, and ]]][[[. In September 2010, he released his second full-length album, Beacons, via Bandcamp. This was his first release available for purchase, using a pay what you want scheme. Additionally, this was his first release available on CD as well as vinyl. Sharp has said this is a result of a constant deluge of requests since he began Cloudkicker. Sharp remains unsigned to any label, saying "I don't like touring and I don't want to have to pay the bills by making music, that would suck all the fun out of it for me. At this point I'm not sure a label could offer me anything I can't already do for myself, and other people seem to be perfectly happy to promote Cloudkicker on their own". « hide
