Ben originally studied violin & jazz piano from a young age and at 21 signed a publishing deal with former Sony/RCA MD and A&R veteran Hugh Goldsmith’s Hotspring Music label in 2009.
Within the first year with Hotspring, he had two co-written songs cut as singles: one with an X Factor winner, and the second was chosen to represent the UK for Eurovision in 2011. After two years with Hotspring, Ben left to branch out into other areas of the music industry centred in London.
Ben went on to co-write "Concrete Angel" with Dee Adam and Christina Novelli, which was released as a dance single in January 2012 by trance DJ Gareth Emery. A video of the original ballad was filmed in March featuring the co-writers in the studio with Ben on piano accompanying Christina. In June, the trance version of Concrete Angel entered the Billboard Dance charts at #25.
Ben’s latest cut “Castles” features on the debut album of The Voice of Germany’s 2012 winner which certified Gold; selling 100,000 copies shortly after release in March.
“Top Of The World” which is performed by the Hugh Goldsmith’s new pop group the Luminites, has been synched to a Microsoft Bing commercial in the UK.
Now based at his own studio in Chiswick, West London, Ben is busy co-writing, string arranging and providing additional production support for writers and producers including Dee Adam (Alexandra Burke, Loicke Essien, Diana Vickers) Mushtaq Omar (Amy Winehouse, Skepta, Misteeq), Nick Atkinson (Rooster, Skepta, Boyzone), Ben Harrison (Emeli Sandé, Rihanna, Tinie Tempah), Jack McManus (The Wanted, Stooshe) TMS (Professor Green, Emeli Sandé, Dappy), and is involved with artist projects including Andreya Triana, Domino Go, Grace Savage, Little Mix, Mic Righteous, Shannon Saunders, The Overtones, The Rascals & Tiffany Page.
