about

For over 10 years, Ben has blazed his own path in the northwest music scene. Firmly grounded in the accessible roots of Bill Evans and Vince Guaraldi, Ben is pushing his complex compositions toward a modern sound, influenced by the likes of Bobo Stenson and Tomasz Stanko.

Of Scars and Permanence is Ben's third studio album. Recorded over an eight month period at Reedwood Friends Church in East Portland, the album's lush sound stems from the gorgeous natural reverb and the beautiful seven-foot Steinway therein. The music itself smolders with subtle melodies and spacious instrumentation that leaves an impression long after the song has faded.
