Ben was born and raised around Dayton, Ohio to a very musical family. Beginning at a young age, he started singing and playing music at his local church, something he continues to this day. His musical study began on the piano and then transitioned to trumpet at Ridgeville Christian School and Bellbrook High School, and eventually earned a B.A. in Church Music from Cedarville University. "Eclectic" would be a good word to describe Ben's genre as he was trained in classical piano, grew up with gospel songs, jazz-infused studies in college, and has a passion to create original music.
Some of his influences include Gavin DeGraw, Jason Mraz, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Switchfoot, and Mumford & Sons.
