Ben Bowen is a Hamilton, Ontario-based multi-instrumentalist (guitar, keys, trumpet, mellophone, pocket trumpet, marching trombone, laptop, sequencer) and composer. With influences ranging from Radiohead to Bruce Cockburn and Prokofiev to Miles Davis, he is carving out a new sound that weaves together electronica, jazz, and pop into fresh aural textures.
"The arts are not a way to make a living. They're a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or how badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake." - Kurt Vonnegut
