In early 2009 Ben released his debut album “Western Lights” and had a staggering 60,000 downloads- worldwide- and without the assistance of a label. The strength and loyalty of his fans is amazing and their word-of-mouth is becoming louder.
2011 will see Ben Semmens recording his first solo album, playing venues around the country, making music, making new fans and with his songs taking people to wherever they might wish to go.
Whatever he does, wherever his music takes you, what’s always important to remember that it’s music that has come straight from the heart of a remarkably gifted singer-songwriter who believes in the power of music.
