Ben Shaw is a singer-songwriter based in the Mojave Desert. Ben's music is a song-driven, modern folk where lyrical melodies are sung with barroom grit, embellished with psychedelic Americana. In 2016, after a decade or so of avoiding the spotlight, Ben released his first full length album in over 15 years, Feet to the Fire.  

In 2018, Ben recorded his follow-up record, Bonita, at Pine Hollow Studios in Eau Claire, WI with Producer Evan Middlesworth (The National). The album was released in August of 2018.  

Ben has also released several singles: “Sticks and Stones” (2016), “America” (2018), “The Man with a Beard” (2018), and “Quarantine Bridge” (2021). 

Ben's concept album, The Iciclist, recorded with Jamie Hill at Department of Energy Management Studios is set to release in 2024.

New Album - Indiegogo campaign 

Howdy All!

Just finished recording a dozen new original songs with my touring band for my next album! It is beautiful.

Instead of using a record label, we decided to reach out to our community to help fund the project so we could make the best album possible. This crowdfunding campaign will help to raise the funds to record, mix, master, and release this album. In exchange for your help to finance this record, you will receive a variety of unique thank you gifts, depending on the amount of your donation.

Sticks and Stones 

I was deeply affected by the tragedy in Paris last November of 2015. Writing music is a source of healing for me and I wrote this song in response to the madness that day. Today, June 12th, another senseless tragedy inspired by hate occurred in Florida. I have been in the midst of making a video for this song, but the release of this song cannot be delayed any more. I hope it brings you the peace and healing it has brought to me and that you will join me in the army of love.
