Ben Chapman grew up in North Georgia, raised in a family of music lovers and Bluegrass pickers. Music gatherings for Ben are as sure as the Georgia heat in July. As a small boy Ben was accustomed to gospel music and Sunday singings. He looked forward to visits with his grandparents because he could always count on their loyalty to classic country tunes. Ben knew music was his calling at an early age, at 12 years old he received his first guitar and the rest is history. Influenced by country legends such as Merle, Waylon, and Willie, Bens musical style also incorporates the love his parents had for Classic Rock that he grew up listening to as well, notably Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and Lynard Skynard.
Ben is currently writing and working with Nashville singer songwriters and playing local venues to pretty much packed out shows with a rapidly growing fan base. His current influences include his hero and mentor, singer songwriter, Channing Wilson, and the likes of Brent Cobb and Jason Isbell.
Ben is looking forward to his debut single in 2019.
