Biography

Watching the sunrise from the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, singer/songwriter, Ben Fuller, found new perspective. “The profound impact of that moment, lead me to the realization that every place and person I meet has a story," he says. As a musician who has been playing guitar and writing original music throughout his life, Ben credits his experiences traveling the world and his appreciation of nature as major inspirations. Seeking out new adventures plays an integral role in Ben’s own history and he lets those experiences resonate and become part of him. "Every time I go somewhere new, it fills me with creative energy that I channel into my music…When I am working out a song or struggling with something in life, I'll spend time outdoors - snowboarding, canoeing, or hiking to find clarity."

Ben Fuller has a hard time labeling his sound. "If I'm feeling nostalgic, I might write a slow song. If I'm feeling upbeat I'm going to write something with a little more pop. Life is emotional and I try to express that through my music." Expanding and adding dimension to his music is something he strives for. "I completely submerge myself in music. I want to be able to play with as many musicians as possible and keep building upon my musical roots". Inspired by classic artists like Bob Marley, the Grateful Dead, and Pink Floyd and contemporary artists like Wilco, Ryan Adams, and The Shins, Ben Fuller aims to create music that conjures up a similar cache of feelings that these artists are known for.

Ben Fuller's ability to create music that appeals to a broad audience is as unique as his sound. With a laid-back philosophy and an engaging voice his songs are intimate and distinctive. "Every town or city that I've lived in or visited has had a part in forming the music I create. And these experiences are reflected in the breadth of my musical interests,” he explains. “I've played in bluegrass bands, alternative country bands, pop bands, rock bands, and all are very different." By combing all of these influences, Ben Fuller has found an original sound that still feels very true and familiar.
