CINNAMON MATINEE - Ben's debut CD “Cinnamon Matinee” was recorded in Detroit at the famed White Room Studios, known for its organic vibe and vintage gear. The result is a collection of songs that is immediately enticing and exudes a charming, casual confidence. Elegant and powerful arrangements are brought to life with solid grooves, deftly layered instrumentation and lyrics that
take seemingly common phrases and turn them on end, providing a new range of perspectives.

Miles of Music proclaims “With hushed beauty, Cyllus let’s free soothingly mellow, yet active and moving melodies that at times sounds like a light hearted Ryan Adams on a pop binge. His strong melodies find their depth in his smart lyrics and un-garishly hip vocal appeal”.

LOVE WINS EP- "Love Wins" is in the final stages of production to be released on Red Exit Records in 2012. Project will contain the tracks "Love Wins" and "Cynical Cinderella" and have a free bonus copy of the "Love Wins" music video



Singer/Songwriter Ben Cyllus taught himself how to play guitar as a teenager using the songbooks and records of songwriting greats Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, and Bob Seeger, among others. When you listen to his music you hear the influences of the masters he studied, as well as the geographic trail he has left behind. You’re connected to the organic surroundings of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, where he was raised, the spirit of Texas where he played in a series of bands with his brothers, as well as the straightforward honesty of the city of Detroit.

A prolific songwriter, Ben has been honing his craft daily, producing songs that are light years above his critically acclaimed first release, “Cinnamon Matinee". At the same time he has built a loyal fan base in nightclubs from Nashville to Upper Michigan. Ben resides in the rolling countryside of Franklin, Tennessee with his wife and two children. Middle Tennessee affords Ben a pastoral setting and creative community that allow him to focus all of his creative energy on developing his art.

Fans of great songwriting will love the MOR sound of “Love Wins”, a contemporary ballad produced in the style of Bruce Hornsby.

The audience that adored Cheap Trick, the Producers, and the Romantics in the 80’s and the Rembrandt’s in the 90’s will dance to the infectious tongue in cheek power pop of “Cynical Cinderella”.
