Ben is a songwriter, videographer, multi instrumentalist, music producer, traveler, and long distance hiker. His path, carved by music, has taken him from the North American wilderness to Vietnam, Cambodia, Israel, Central America, and finally to his mountain home in Asheville, North Carolina.
Ben is a passionate and captivating performer who writes from the heart, speaks to the soul, and never forgets to find the humor in life. Ben believes that we heal each other through building community, developing deep relationships, and being of service.
The video for Ben’s new tune, “Close,” was filmed by Asheville Film and Video. The song was recorded at Phantom Studios and The Eagle Room, and features Matt Williams on guita/background vocals/MIDI instruments & beat production, and Rich Brownstein on synth keys.
‘My new song, Close, was written for all the people I love who are far away,” says Ben, in a recent Facebook post. “When we are deeply connected with someone, no amount of time, space, or distance can change it. My life is made possible by all the people who have loved me and supported me on my crazy and winding path- you are always with me.’
