Ben spent a large portion of his formative years touring the world with Warner-signed, alt-indie band Coasts. Having played prestigious events such as Coachella, Glastonbury and Reading and with a top 20 album and a live-lounge performance under their belts the band split in October 2018.
In 2019 Ben organised and directed the first Wild Paths Festival. A 23-venue, musical event spread across the city of Norwich, featuring over 230 live acts, a host of conference speakers, visual artists, DJs, food pop-ups and much more.
The festival has developed year-on-year and in 2024 the team plan to deliver a new 4-day, socially conscious music festival featuring festival banquets, wellness experiences and immersive performance.
Ben also runs Voodoo Daddys Showroom. A dive-bar, pizza joint and independent music venue in the centre of Norwich.
