About Artist

For blues guitarist Ben Austin, recording and releasing an album has been a lifelong goal. Having spent nearly 15 years writing and performing, Ben is spending time in the studio working on his debut album expected to release in 2011. He continues to perform live in the Chicago area so please visit the show schedule for upcoming events.

A native to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Ben’s style is deeply influenced by southern rock, Texas blues, and elements of funk and jazz. Legendary and contemporary blues artists such as Albert King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Robert Johnson, B.B. King, Robert Cray, and Eric Clapton have inspired Ben’s unique approach to the guitar. Classic rockers including Billy Gibbons, Mark Knopfler, Hendrix, and David Gilmour have also been especially influential to Ben’s style.

The album connects Ben’s musical past with new sounds and influences he’s discovered while living in Chicago over the last 5 years. Ben will be featured on lead and rhythm guitar, vocals, and accompanying instruments. Demo versions of Ben’s previously recorded tracks to be included on the album can be found in the “Music” section of
