29 Mar 2019 Once Only Event
Ben Whiting is genuinely stumped about what he would be doing, if not music. He is what happens when a 90’s kid puts The Police and Bob Marley on high rotation, sits in a beanbag in an old aircraft hanger to watch his extended family play regular jam nights, and is then mentored in playing and touring from age 13.
Those early influences have guided and continue to teach him, and the result is a gifted singer-songwriter comfortable with using a broad palette of inspiration to create a sound that is wholly his own.
Early in his career, Ben’s previous band played festivals including Splendour In The Grass and supported artists such as Katy Perry, Grinspoon and The Angels.
He followed this period with a pivot to a folk aesthetic, and has now integrated his rock experience back into his songwriting and performances. The continual thread running throughout Whiting’s various artistic expressions is his virtually flawless voice; it cannot help but remain the standout feature.
