Originally from Philadelphia, Ben studied both classical and jazz music before moving to the great city of Chicago.  There he spent years performing and working with the top musicians in town, absorbing the unique blend of Jazz and Blues that can only be found in the Windy City.  Now re-located to New York, Ben is poised to bring his unique talents and style to a wider audience, combining hard-swinging grooves and melodic improvisation with an impeccable touch.

Whether playing lush ballads on the piano, digging into some hard-driving blues-tinged organ jazz on the Hammond B3, or singing classic tunes made by the likes of Ray Charles and Nat King Cole, Ben has garnered international acclaim for his superb musicianship and engaging performances, able to draw in both afficionados and Jazz neophytes alike.

Notable performances include opening for acts such as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, and Steely Dan, the Montreal Jazz Festival, Chicago Jazz and Blues Festivals, shows in France, China, Belgium, Switzerland, Mexico, Sweden, and Taiwan, and bookings at premier Jazz venues including Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Rainbow Room, Smalls Jazz Club, Smoke Jazz, Mezzrow, The Jazz Showcase, The Green Mill and The Jazz Gallery to name a few.
