Ben Shaw is a singer-songwriter who splits his time between Los Angeles, CA and Wisconsin, USA, writing 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.
As a follow-up to Feet to the Fire, in April 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 2018.
In February 2021, Ben released the single, Quarantine Bridge, a song about coping with the loss of a friend from Covid-19.
Ben is in pre-production for his concept album, The Iciclist, which will be recorded in 2022 with Jamie Hill at Department of Energy Management Studios.
Ben has performed solo or with full band in a variety of venues: coffee houses, house concerts, music bars, theaters, and music festivals.
