Magnetic vocals, singular guitar stylings and songs that simultaneously include optimism, beauty and darkness describes Ben Whiting.

Ben Whiting, a native to Byron Bay has authentic and occasionally nostalgic musings on life and love – he has created a fresh take on contemporary indie folk, with a distinctive crowd-pleasing rock edge honed on the streets of Melbourne.

This edge is always underscored by his magnetic vocals, singular guitar stylings and songs that simultaneously include optimism, beauty and darkness.

In another incarnation Ben has played festivals including Splendour in the Grass and has supported artists such as Katy Perry, Grinspoon and The Angels.

He followed this period with a pivot to a folk aesthetic, and has now integrated his rock experience back into his songwriting and performances.
