His DIY ethic is strong, his will to succeed unbreakable and his songs are catchy, meaningful and real. His lyrical content has a dark undercurrent, never shying from reality or glossing the truth when need be.
That said, when he writes a pop tune, it catches your imagination, taking you back to your childhood with an innocence you know you can never return to.
Ben has his roots planted deeply in the Grunge era, which is evident in his arrangements and melody. His dynamic vocal delivery blending from smooth and soulful to gravelly and guttural all within the same phrase.
With his acoustic guitar being his primary instrument he creates walls of guitars on many tracks, building crescendo with layers of sound. Ben is a multi instrumentalist, playing most, if not all tracks on each of his songs with friends occasionally joining him on a few tracks.
Ben's ultimate goal is to be entirely self-sufficient from his music and to help his peers with their own musical aspirations via recording and production.
