DRY TOWN National Top 5 Hit (Country Tracks Top 40). Brand new single from the forthcoming album. It's a testament to the resilience of our regional farmers and touches on current issues such as our harsh climate and the prevalence of suicide among the population. Ben says " there's a real struggle out there everywhere, but increasingly in rural communities. It's one that is rooted in the unpredictability of mother nature and the pressures associated with this. It not only affects our farmers, but our families, neighbours and our friends" The song transcends the genre and sets up the sounds and direction of his new album.
BEN WINS AT 2016 SOUTHERN STAR AWARDS
A star studded night in Mildura saw Ben take out the Award for Best Male Rising Star for the 2016 Southern Star Awards. Felicity Urqhart presented Ben with the award with thanks from CRS Publicity, Festival organisers and festival co-ordinator John Arnold. An almost speechless Ben was overwhelmed when receiving the Award and later said that all the Artists involved are some of the finest musicians in Australia and some of the best company to be in. Well done to everyone involved.
Yes...it's true... A brand new album will be coming with some amazing new songs. Some of these tunes have been getting punters excited at the live shows and may already be familiar to some of you...so it's with great pleasure that Ben will be able to bring them to you on his next recording.
