Just Ben / Bio

If you were to ask me what kind of music do I like. I would have to say "good music". In saying that, the music can come from any genre and I do mean any genre. I like it all just as long as it speaks to me. I don't care what country, neighborhood or people. Anyone is capable of creating something that speaks to my heart or mind. I'm like Quincy Jones, Barry White, Isaac Hayes, Sting, Carlos Santana, and Burt Bacharach all rolled into one when it comes to versatility and taste. Love my E.W.&F., Maze, Pink Floyd, Isley Brothers, Steve Miller Band, Motown Sound and '70's & "80's hip-hop. I wear many hats when it comes to my music. I write, compose, arrange, play all parts with hardly any loops (if any). It all depends on what the track calls for. Trying to stay good lookin' from Brooklyn with the different sounds I be cookin'. Raised with that Long Island, New York flava which in itself is a mixed bag of sounds and vibes. Which is why you'll find all types of music throughout my list of tracks. I incorporate all of my experiences throughout life into my music. Truth be told, almost everyone can find a track or two that appeals to them. I like variety, so that's what I try to offer with my art. I try a provide a groove for all walks of life. I know it's been said, "you can't please everyone". The fun part about trying is that I get pleasure from it because it allows me to expand my horizons creatively. I feel as long an artist remain true to themselves in the process, then it's all good. Besides,I'm easily bored with the same type of music all the time. So feel free to rummage around what I've uploaded so far. I'm almost sure you'll find something to your liking.
