Ben Shaw is a singer-songwriter based in the United States. 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.
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.
Ben has also released several singles: “Sticks and Stones” (2016), “America” (2018), “The Man with a Beard” (2018), and “Quarantine Bridge” (2021).
Ben has collaborated on several projects including “Fading Dreams” as one half of the duo, Jill and Ben (2019), lead guitar on "Hudson River Blues" with The Kinteners (2020), and sang on "Ashtray" for the Kintners' Collaborations (2022).
Ben's concept album, The Iciclist, is in production with Jamie Hill at Department of Energy Management Studios and is set to release in 2023.
Ben has performed solo or with a full band in a variety of venues: coffee houses, house concerts, music bars, theaters, and music festivals.
