Bio

After playing blues & roots festivals around WA, supporting Ash Grunwald, Mat McHugh (The Beautiful Girls), OKA, Mosquito Coast and heaps more, Ben Catley has truly crafted his own brand of upbeat, feel-good acoustic blues and roots. Expect grooving foot-stomping, lively guitar playing, powerful vocals and a hell of a stage presence that arguably boasts the energy of a full band and will be sure to get you on your feet.

Following his upbeat bluesy EP, Move Fast, Ben released his latest single, What's Riding, which took him to No.7 in the TripleJ Unearthed roots/rock chart. "A seriously catchy little thing with a pumping groove" - AMNPLIFY.

Ben also released a remix of the track, collaborating with Californian producer, Boulger, and Perth MC, Bluntfield. "A killer genre mash-up, with Catley's grungey guitar riffs and gritty vocals working perfectly over a tough hip hop beat" - PILERATS.
