As a teenager, Ben developed a great passion for classic rock music as he discovered artists such as Jimi Hendrix, The Who and AC/DC. At fourteen years old, he picked up a guitar and was a writing music within a year.
Ben is a unique, versatile artist. His songs are filled with energy, driven by his powerful voice and fierce, rhythmic guitar style. Ben creates explosive rock songs but also composes heartfelt pop and folk ballads inspired by artists such as The Corrs, John Mayer and Gordon Giltrap.
Whilst playing solo, Ben also performs with a trio and a string quartet all of whom are former students of the RNCM in Manchester, where Ben received his Masters Degree in Popular Music. His love of classical composers such as Stravinsky and Beethoven fuels his passion for writing for strings. He has performed with the trio and quartet at the King Edward Street Chapel in Macclesfield twice to a full house.
In May 2016, Ben's studio EP ‘Ride’ was released, featuring talented musicians Josh Savage and Joseph Shaw, the drummer and bassist in his trio. He gigs regularly around Manchester and Cheshire. Ben’s music has been played on Radio XS (now Radio XS Manchester) as well as other local stations.
