Whether it's laying down the drums on Ed Sheeran's multi-platinum selling debut album, co writing the lead single from American singer Alex Winston's debut album, recording as in-house multi-instrumentalist in the studio with award winning producer Charlie Hugall, or touring around Europe with up and coming artists The Beach (UROK) & Casi (Roc Nation), Ben approaches all work with huge optimism and energy.
Born in Doncaster and growing up in North Yorkshire, Ben began drumming at age 3 with a selection of pots and pans. Working up an appetite for pop music in his teens and making bi-annual trips to Germany to study under drumming greats Steve Smith, Russ Miller, and Thomas Lang (Musikakademie Marktoberdorf), Ben concurrently studied the undergraduate syllabus at Leeds College of Music before making the move to Guildford to achieve a BA Honours degree at the Academy of Contemporary Music.
Extending beyond his speciality in drums, Ben is also performs as a vocalist/guitarist.
Ben lives in Clapham, SW London.
