Ben's

Biography

Ben lives in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, located on the site of a 3000 year old Indian village. He creates his songs, art, and stories on sacred land, and feels the passage of those who came before him in the stone tools, jasper arrowheads, and clay pottery slipping down the river banks. When he’s not performing, Ben is at home enjoying his proudest works of all – his two sons. He hopes that someday they will have their own successful journeys but not until they learn to load and unload the dishwasher!

Ben is about to release his fourth CD, “Flesh and Bone,” on February 7, 2018. The album features Steuart Smith from The Eagles, as well as Steve Van Dam and Nate Brown of the band, Everything (with hit single, “Hooch”). “Flesh and Bone” displays Ben’s artwork and lyrics in a 16-page booklet, which comes with the CD. “Flesh and Bone” is all we have to travel through the mistakes and triumphs that make us who we are.
