Welcome to my site! My name is Ben Myers and I'm an independent singer-songwriter from Kansas. My songs are based in blues, rock, and folk, as well as having strong pop influences. I've been making music for over a decade and have released 3 studio albums over the past 4 years (and 7 "demo" albums prior to those!) - all as a solo artist. With each new work I've tried to raise the creative bar even higher!
My music is personal, fun, and dreamy with hints of psychedelia. My more abstract lyrics have been compared to the style of classic poet and romantic dreamer John Keats. My musical inspirations are mostly drawn from my ever-growing library of musical greats from the classic 60's to the alternative 80's and everything in-between and around.
I'm very proud to introduce to you my highest personal bar raised yet, my newest album, "Daylight Moon".
New members can immediately download my hidden album "Substitute for Love" for free! Members also get exclusive access to the Member Section where you can watch video blogs, hear new song demos, and exchange ideas with me. Look for the password included with the download and in my occasional email newsletter... and I promise, no spam.
