Ben Barrington / Bio

Born around the corner from Tina Turner, two blocks away from Ray Charles, just down the street from Nancy Wilson, and across the street from Smokey Robinson's bass player... let's just say music was his destiny. He Lived in L.A. until the age of 11 years, at which time he moved to Madrid, Spain with his family.
While still a teenager, by chance of the house DJ failing to appear for two nights in a row, Ben was offered the job, which led to several successful years as a club DJ throughout all of Spain, including Barcelona, Benidorm, Alicante, Valencia, and of course Madrid.
Ben's initial taste of the music recording industry came with the million selling hit "PARIS LATINO", in collaboration with the Paris based, Francophile/Latin pop group "BANDOLERO" on Virgin Records France, which led to a solo recording contract with Polygram Spain. He continued his musical globetrotting, performing, and composing or co-composing over 45 titles released worldwide, mainly in the Spanish and French speaking markets, overall selling more than 7 million units, including his own 1990 hit "YOU'LL NEVER FALL" from his Polygram Iberica solo debut CD "BENJAMIN", as well as, the mega Spanish language international hit "LOCOMIA" for the former WEA haute couture boy band of the same name. Ben also spent several years as a successful TV host in Spain, and successful stage musical performer in Europe.
After many years abroad, Ben returned to the US, spending a few years expanding his skills in TV and Film production working on nationally syndicated shows such as Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition, Judge Alex, Oprah's "The Big Give", and BBC documentaries, to name a few.
Today, Ben has come full circle going back to his musical roots, looking forward to reveling in the creative freedom offered by the revolutionary changes that have given way to a completely new music industry compared to his beginnings.
Currently, Ben is between the US, Spain, and the UK preparing material for his new musical project "With You", featuring the lead single "Don't Steal My Love".
