BIO

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. Getting his first residency gig at the young age of 16, he became forever inspired and enthused to perform at as many places across Australia, and has done so ever since.

Releasing his EP ‘Follow Your Feet’ in 2016, at 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, toured New Zealand supported by Coco Michelle, released a live album in 2019 'Live at Baha', continually paving the way for more opportunities to bring his musical memoirs and empowering values to as many people as possible.

He has been featured at several festivals across Australia including Dragon Dreaming, Rabbits Eat Lettuce, Bohemian Beatfreaks, Tropical Bloom, Byron Bay Guitar Festival, and many more.

Ben Jansz’s sound can be described as Aussie Roots/Forest Folk with elements of Organic Trance. Inspired by nature's sounds, 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.
