About the Event
BEN GOLDSMITH Featuring ROWAN CLARK

Ben Goldsmith will be joined by bandmates, James Bandini on Bass and Matthew Martirano on Drums.

Multidimensional artist Ben Goldsmith would like to tell you he “never could’ve imagined” this for himself, but he’s quick to note that – call it confidence or a preternatural headstrongness years in the making – it’d just not be true. “In a way, I’ve been working towards this since I was 3 or 4,” he says. “I’ve never strayed. It’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do.”

That “thing” Ben’s referring to is making music – more than music, it’s an art free from genre, with melodies as strong as some of the teen’s many influences. Ben was born and bred on acts like Aerosmith, Dave Mathews Band, Elton John, Queen, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, and Bob Dylan. Ben floats between worlds, genres, and sounds, truly a jack and master of all trades.

Having released his debut album, The World Between My Ears, in 2023 – before he even graduated – Ben now turns the page on his next chapter. “For the first album, it was a more tight-knit circle approach which really worked at the time while I was still in high school,” Ben says. “However, as soon as I closed the door on the last season and opened the door to this new era, I knew from the get-go that I needed to expand and take a drastically different approach.” In Nashville, Ben is working with songwriters the likes of Jon Green, Natalie Hemby, Alex Hope, Laura Veltz, Caitlyn Smith, Brad Tursi, and more. He has also been commuting back and forth to Los Angeles where he has spent consecutive days with Dan Wilson, Peter Fenn, Rick Nowels, Sean Douglas, and Casey Smith, to name a few.

The upcoming album will be released in September of 2024. The first release “Love Again” will drop on May 3, 2024.

“My goals are incredibly high for this next wave of music. There are so many different musical avenues to explore with the amazing writers and creatives I’ve been working with lately,” he says.

Named to The Hollywood Reporter’s “Emerging Artists 18 and Under [hollywoodreporter.com]” club for music this year and equipped with a natural yet extraordinary gift for singing, songwriting, and performing, Ben is blazing his own Converse-paved trail. @bengoldsmith.net
