BIOGRAPHY

Ben Stewart is a Brisbane-based covers musician with a strong, soaring voice and unique, percussive guitar style, which provides an organic twist to his extensive catalog of pop/rock tunes from the past 30 years. Ben has been performing constantly around Brisbane and Sydney for over 10 years, playing in local bars, pubs, weddings and corporate events, including most recently at venues like The Charming Squire, The Pig and Whistle bars, members areas at Suncorp and The Gabba Stadiums, Spicers Balfour (New Farm), The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and Brisbane Powerhouse.

He slides easily between relaxed background vibes and upfront groovy dance songs depending on what the situation requires, with interpretations of songs by Vance Joy, Chet Faker, Pearl Jam, Green Day, Diesel, Daft Punk, Lorde, Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Oasis, U2 and Mumford and Sons, to name a few.
