Ben Hammond performs a wide range of groove-oriented acoustic music, original compositions and re-imagined cover songs. Born in the foothills of the White Mountains, Ben's first musical endeavors outside rural New England took him north to McGill University where he received a degree in Music Technology and Jazz Voice, worked the city's live music circuit in several bands and appeared as a guest performer at the Montreal Jazz Festival. For the past decade, he has since made his living exclusively through music, relentlessly touring all four corners of the United States, Southeast Asia and New Zealand, combining his dual passions of travel and music. Predominantly a soloist, he also shines in duo and band settings, layering his unique style with varied talent from around the world.
While not on the road, Ben has been active in the studio, producing three full length albums (12,000 independently sold and counting), multiple music videos, and a live concert DVD "Solo at Stone Mountain Arts Center". Thousands of shows later at hundreds of venues, festivals and private events, Hammond has honed his smooth, energetic style and is one of the most sought after musicians in those places he's called home.
