Ben Malone started learning guitar as a six year old, joined junior school bands and combined with his parents to play music at their local church. During high school, he consistently performed at an advanced level playing guitar and drums.
Since that time, Ben has become a well-known and popular performer in the Southern Highlands featuring regularly at venues throughout the region. He is also a member of local bands, Ross Webb and the Rusted Track and Eklypse with local musician Angus Murray.
Beyond the Highlands, he has toured nationally with singer, songwriter Hollie Col, as drummer and backing vocalist. He has performed with Pete Murray, Icehouse, Winterbourne, 19-Twenty, and Kodaline (UK) and at a recent festival which featured The Rubens, Spiderbait, Middle Kids and Skeggs.
Ben continues to grow his works and expertise as a songwriter and has the ability to convey emotion and message through his words and performance. Ben is no doubt a highly talented multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter which will ensure his success in the Australian music scene.
