Ben Jansz is an Australian folk/roots musician, currently living in the Northern Rivers of NSW.
Passionate about music since the age of 10, Ben has always aspired to create and share his sounds with the world. At 16, he earned his first residency close to home in the Mornington Peninsula, VIC, and has continued to perform across Australia ever since.
Following a self-funded tour along the East Coast in 2015, the release of his EP, Follow Your Feet in 2016 and his first ticketed event, supporting Kim Churchill, Ben's reputation began to flourish. He has since supported Josh Pyke in Melbourne, toured the Northern Territory, supporting Thirsty Merc in Alice Springs, and New Zealand, supported by Coco Michelle.
More recently, he has been featured at several festivals across Australia including Dragon Dreaming, Rabbits Eat Lettuce, Bohemian Beatfreaks, and Tropical Bloom.
Ben Jansz’s sound can be described as Aussie roots/forest folk with elements of organic trance. Inspired by nature's sounds and ancestral symphonies, and musical influences such as John Butler, Xavier Rudd, and Matt Corby, he has been said to combine some of their most remarkable qualities with his own captivating vocals and skillful use of multiple instruments, creating the distinctive Ben Jansz sound.
