Behind the Music

Ben’s second album “On The Jukebox” treats fans to his trademark Americana sound, with heart-gripping, story-telling songs. With two albums recorded and the third in production, Ben’s loyal fans attest to the relatability of the songs’ lyrics and their addictive melodies, comparing his voice to home-made maple syrup, warm and gritty, leaving you wanting just one more song.

At age 15, Ben started his career in music, joining his 1st garage band.  As a weekend warrior, he was the lead guitar/vocal in many bands over the years, including The Famous Lees of Krumville, Thunder Ridge and the Ben Rounds Band.  In 2011, Ben started living the dream as a successful full-time working musician.  In January of 2014, Ben began his solo career, averaging at least 15 public and private shows a month.  Eight months later, he released his long awaited debut album, self-titled “Ben Rounds”.

Every song on both albums were written/co-written and composed by Ben Rounds.  Ben is a veteran song-writer of 35 years, his songs are “a hybrid blend of traditional country, rockabilly, blues and folk, often drawing from the driving energy of Chuck Berry rock-n-roll and the intensity of Hank Williams country” as described by Fred Perry.  To quote the review of his debut album by Dina Kaliko, “Ben Rounds’ self-titled solo album reveals country music odes to blue collar America, dogs, and groupies with killer guitar licks, harmonica, dancing tunes and sensitive spot-on love songs.”

  1. I met you and the band at a Mexican restaurant in Fleischmann’s, NY in Nov. 2012 while on a hiking trip. It was a great show that night. I hope to see you soon an upcoming event.
