Ben

How’s everyone doing then? I’m Ben, I play guitar and I occasionally get out the ukulele. I sing as well, lead singer and songwriter. My main influences guitar wise are definitely David Gilmour and a band called Driftless Pony Club. My song writing style stems from listening to early Pink Floyd music, Jonas Brothers (guilty pleasure) and my love for Arctic Monkeys, creating a sort of catchy fun indie rock cake with a bit of a burnt edge. Writing songs for the band is my passion, I’ve never written anything for just me to play and I feel like the rest of the bands playing styles influence my writing style. People often ask how I go about writing songs and the short answer is I don’t know. I just find inspiration from things around me, it could be a phrase someone says, a person or just a place where I’ve been. As far as it goes for hobbies music is my main hobby. I also enjoy making small filmic videos and learning about other bands. I’m a very passionate actor, which is where a lot of my love for performing comes from. Thanks for reading this!
