Originally from England, Ben’s family moved to Sydney when he was just seven years old. That’s when he started playing bass guitar. Music remained his loyal companion throughout his school years after which he headed to JMC Academy. There he studied Contemporary Music Performance and Songwriting under the watchful eye of lecturer and later mentor and co-writer, Rick Grossman (bass player with both The Divinyls and The Hoodoo Gurus and two-time ARIA Hall of Famer), graduating in 2022 with a Bachelor of Music degree.
Music is all Ben wants to do. In his words: “Music is my drug. I’m really just a very normal 20-something guy, which makes me a little different I guess… that and my collection of crazy socks.” Ben has released two self-recorded singles and is now recording his debut EP ‘Homesick’ at Sydney’s Kiln Studios where artists like Lime Cordiale, Jessica Mauboy and Idris Elba have recorded before him.
