---------------- ...'Perhaps most reminiscent of Jack Johnson, Ben often uses a combination of a variation on the rap style and sung melodies, switching back and forth between styles easily and seamlessly....' Elise MacDonald instrumentalist, music educator ---------------- ...'Ben is certainly a talented young man, with an ear for catchy music, an eye for design, and a voice made for the radio.' -Steven Ingram, Left off the dial ---------------- My Style has a very acoustic laid back feel to it. I like incorporating clever lyrics, dynamic harmonies (on CD) and a good message. I previously was in an acoustic/pop/jam band called Swoop which I suppose has had a great influence on my new CD. I am proud to say I have many influences. To state the more popular: Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Dave Mathews and Nickel Creek. Aside from mainstream music, I have been exposed to many different types of composition growing up including Jazz, Classical, and many different kinds of traditional world music including Balkan, Gospel, and African. I have been playing guitar for 11 years now, and singing out loud since I can remember. I also play frequently with a tight group of friends who use a variety of instruments. We are looking at a potential full length CD to be finished summer 2004.
