Bio

Straight off the back of a release featuring Ash Grunwald, Perth's Ben Catley follows up with a banger of a slide guitar single. As if an EDM track collided with a delta blues track, 'Go Better' is a thumping three minutes of blues/rock that perfectly captures the energy and intensity of Ben's live show.

"It's a fairly simple blues track, just with some slide guitar that's bloody tricky to play while singing and playing the kick drum. The song touches on experiences, mainly on stage, where things aren't going to plan at all. As a metaphor for life in general, I've found that through the adversity of things going wrong, things always seem to end up going better."

Ben's music is wildly energetic, dynamic and beautiful - weaving between rock, dance, blues and roots. Touring constantly throughout Australia, NZ, UK and further across the globe with his mesmerising guitar playing and uplifting stage energy, the Perth-based artist captivates crowds like few other solo acts.

"Vibrant and big energy roots. It’s pure and feeling-centric.” XPRESS MAG

Ben and Ash together - a potent combination that's guaranteed to bring a bit of dirt and sweat.
