Bio

Broadwing is the pseudonym of Ben Allen, a songwriter living in Darwin NT.

His songs feature an amalgamation of organic and software instrumentation and are written and recorded entirely at home. As a live entity his shows range from stripped back acoustic shows to more involved electronically aided performances.

Host of ‘Home and Hosed’, Dom Alessio, said of his work, “An incredible talent from the middle of Australia. What’s more impressive is that it’s just one guy!”

His song 'Pockets' won the 2015 NT Song of the Year Competition and another song 'Maple' took out the Electronic category.

Ben was chosen from 900 entrants to win the 2012 Apra Tropscore competition and performed his work in front of an audience of 90,000 at Tropfest in the Domain, Sydney.

In 2012 he was one of the eight artists chosen in the Triple J Apra Song Summit competition where he was invited to attend the summit and participate in a roundtable discussion with Gotye and Adalita Srsen.

In 2014 he won Audio Technology Magazine's 'Biggest Remix Comp In The World' and received over $13000 in studio gear.

His debut EP ‘Pinhole Camera’ is available on itunes-

Just when you thought you'd heard it all, an artist turns Justine Clarke's voice into a synth. This is so impressive.
