Hello. My name is Ben. I've been playing guitar for 10 years. Over that time I have fronted 4 different bands - all very different from each-other (Funk, Folk, Ragge, Christian Rock, and Classic Rock). All of these groups were out of Ann Arbor Mi. However, I currently reside in New York City.
Over the last 10 years I've gone from focusing on being a lead guitar player to being a song writer, and most recently, a producer. Like every other musician who's too stubborn to give up the dream, I got a certificate in Audio Engineering after I graduated College in hopes to work in an atmosphere that I enjoy. After interning at three different studios for no pay, I decided to pave my own road and I'm currently building up my project studio from which I have used to track and compose my own tunes and the commercial jingles I write.
I would like most to join a group that is looking to do covers and play paid gigs. I consider myself pretty versatile, however I'm best with the genres mentioned above.
