Los Angeles, CA
Ben Caron is a Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter and actor. A self-taught guitarist, Ben wrote his first song when he was fifteen. Without ever having played before, he picked up the guitar which his mother purchased when she was pregnant with him and plucked out his first original tune. He’s been writing songs on the same guitar ever since.
A talented actor and musician, Ben Caron’s fresh, yet endearingly classic tone is influenced by the artists he listened to when he was growing up, such as Elton John, Garth Brooks, James Taylor and the hit-makers of Motown. Ben’s eclectic style, relatable lyrics and passionate performances have earned him a loyal and growing following in Los Angeles.
When he was 18-years old, he decided to make Los Angeles his home and pursue a career in acting. He continued to write music and gig at open mics on the side, but it wasn’t until he’d finished college that he realized that his true passion was to be a musician. Known for his full and clear vocals, Ben seems to approach each of his songs from a pivotal point of view of the “every-man” and delivers a powerful performance that resonates with the audience. His own relationship experiences, some good and some bad, have presented opportunities to learn and grow, and his feelings and stories expressed through song are easily relatable to everyone in the room.
Ben’s debut, self-titled album was released in 2013, and has been met with critical acclaim and enthusiasm from fans. He is currently working on a follow-up album to be released in 2015.
