Biography

Ben is currently recording his upcoming album, Spartan Magic, a synthesis of breakbeat, hip hop and house grooves set to move the soul.

Browsing through his song catalog, it's no surprise that Ben has been compared to a wide variety of musicians throughout his years. This is simply because he has been involved with music on so many levels. As a drummer, guitarist, pianist, vocalist and producer, Ben has worked with a diverse range of musical styles for broad audiences. He wrote his first song at age six, won his first songwriting contest at age twelve, and released his first album at age sixteen. While in college at MIT, he produced several hip hop tracks for Narcoleptic Records as well as numerous independent artists. His dedication to music inspired him to take a year off from school and move to Los Angeles. During that time, he worked in the A&R, Promotions and Marketing departments of Avatar Records, an independent urban label.

Ben grew up between the San Francisco Bay Area and Santa Fe, New Mexico. His earliest exposure to music came from his father, who played guitar and banjo and his grandmother whom he often heard play a beautiful grand piano. The patience and detail expressed in Ben’s artistic craft are a reflection of his grandfather, a Santero who carves and paints religious figures; his work has been featured in magazines, displayed in churches, and is sold in New Mexico galleries. Just as his grandfather is with visual arts, Ben lives, breathes and dreams about his songs.

With a strong collaborative spirit, Ben constantly seeks opportunities to create music with others. However, he maintains a proactive do-it-yourself attitude when it comes to his own productions; Ben records, engineers, and arranges all of his mixes. He possesses a highly professional work ethic, focused on detail and completion. Ben Ramon is looking to find placement opportunities for his music on compilations and in film/television. He is turning out music at a rapid pace, so please continue to check out www.benramon.com for updates!
