Originally hailing from a fishing village in the east newk of fife, guitarist/ singer songwriter Ben Berman was raised on a steady diet of lentils and an eclectic taste in music, including genres such as rock, folk, pop and jazz. Originally starting out as guitarist some 15 years ago Ben felt inspired to start singing and writing when moving through to Glasgow in 2009 to study music performance at North Glasgow college. He became involved in the thriving music scene that the city has to offer. As well as performing as a soloist Ben has previously played in bands playing both covers and original material playing at corporate events and also hosting live events such as open mic nights. Having recently developed and interest in music production Ben began work on his debut EP entitled Hill Cress which gave him complete creative control having recorded and played all the instruments and mixed and mastered the tracks himself.
