More info at http://www.myspace.com/benhammondrock BEN HAMMOND #1: Bio: Born in the tiny town of Hiram, Maine and graduated in 2006 with a degree in Music Technology from McGill University in Montreal, Ben Hammond has since been touring and playing festivals (including the Montreal Jazz Festival) and venues (Montreal's Sala Rossa and Metropolis, Living Room in New York City, many more). Recent appearances and activities have ranged from tours of his home in rural New England to across the world in New Zealand, composing original songs, and completing his full length studio album "[Reasonably] Honest" with full band and Downbeat Magazine award winning mixer Reuben Ghose. Most recently he recorded a sold out live solo concert at the Stone Mountain Arts Center, which will soon be released on DVD. He was also a recent winner in the Sarasota Creative Loafing's "Best of the Suncoast" Contest.
Schooled in jazz, raised on rock, immersed in soul, and fascinated with music the world over, Ben can just as easily be found strumming and singing a ballad as he can live looping an a cappella improvisation of singing, beatboxing, and harmonized scatting. When performing his composed material, either as a soloist or with his quartet, the music features Ben's engaging, soulful vocals weaved within a framework of genre-shifting instrumentation which provides a platform for contemplative, understated lyrics.
