A life full of music

The Lower Austrian, who has been a full-time musician since 2012, made his first band experiences as a guitarist in 1999 and was involved in various musical projects until 2006, before he founded the Ben Sullivan Project, which was later renamed Ben Sullivan & Band.

***

After his studies at the Vienna Conservatory (without graduation) with main subject Jazz guitar he organized several charity concerts in St.Pölten from 2010 on, released the album LET IT RAIN, shot a music video for the Blues single DON'T KNOW WHY and played live concerts in Austria and Germany.

***

In the summer of 2015 he made some guest appearances in Greece and recorded a studio album on the Greek island of Lesbos with the Greek / English singer EJK. A few months later Benjamin opened the music shop "Ben's Guitar Shop" in Ober - Grafendorf / Lower Austria.

In his music he moves between the styles of blues, soul and singer-songwriter, but also cover songs are reinterpreted.
