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 joined his Midwest based band mates to record 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 has performed solo or with full band in a variety of venues: coffee houses, house concerts, music bars, theaters, and music festivals.
