Born and raised in Sydney, Ben Ransom, started playing guitar and writing songs at the age of fifteen.
Growing up, he was constantly exposed to a broad range of music that strongly influences his own original writing style. It has allowed Ben to draw the listener in on many different levels and connect in a more personal way.
In 1999, Ben left Australia to spend time in Europe, essentially to hone his skills and develop his musical style. He cut his teeth in the heart of London’s West End with a permanent residency in one of the most happening venues at the time and thanks to Ben’s down to earth personality and ability to deliver live saw him become one of the hottest, most sought after artists in that scene.
In 2010, Ben completed his first album, “The Long Way”.
In 2012 he was a finalist in the coveted Toyota Star Maker competition and completed the album, “Slow Burn”, in 2012 with Matt Fell and Glen Hannah.
Ben has being named a finalist at the 2013 Southern Stars Awards for Best Male Artist and Best New Talent.
In October 2013, Ben was introduced to international hit maker and multi million record selling producer, Rob E.G. Porter.
This resulted in the collaboration on the Jackson Browne classic, “Somebody’s Baby”. Released under Porters’ famous Wizard record label, the track was launched at the 2014 Country Music Festival and entered the charts at #10.
In 2017 Ben joined Country Rocks Records as their first signed artist to their newly formed label.
Earlier in the year he performed daily in the main arena at the 2017 Sydney Royal Easter Show and had the pleasure of supporting iconic artists including Jon Stevens, 1927, and James Blundell.
Ben has gone on to play every major country music festival in Australia and was selected as an opening performer for US superstar, Tim McGraw, at the Deni Ute Muster.
