Bio

Hey I'm Ben.

I have just released my first album called Sirens. It took seven years to write, two years to record and I have put it out completely independently.

The album was produced by Jono Steer (Ainslie Wills) and percussionist Leigh Fisher (Kirkis, Washington), and features contributions by some pretty awesome Aussies including Gotye, Gossling, Tim Shiel and Ryan Meeking (from Whitaker).

I've been playing music a little while but this is my first release.

My folks were pop/folk singers in Indonesia in the 70s and word on the Indonesian street is that people still sing one of their songs.

A few years ago I tried to go to university to be a film maker and never wanted to be a musician but...well here I am.

I hope you like it.

Bxx

You're got a really great turn of phrase Ben. Not a bad voice either!

A really moody and beautiful tune here from Ben. Stay with it.
