I am a country and Americana musician, and I perform either as a one man band or with my group. In my one man band set up I sing, play guitar, harmonica, and foot percussion all at the same time. My five piece band (bass, drums, piano, electric guitar, and me) consists of the finest pickers in Southern California.

I am based in Los Angeles, and I perform all around Southern California. From the honky tonks of Bakersfield to the wineries of Temecula to weddings in Beverly Hills to country night at Dodger Stadium, I play in all kinds of venues. I have a large repertoire of covers and originals, from mellow to barn burning, and I come fully prepared for your event. I own all my own equipment, so there is no need to rent any sound gear when you hire me. I love making music, and I play from the heart whenever I pick up my instrument. Give me a shout if you're interested in me playing your event!

BIO:

Ben Bostick is a South Carolina-raised, Southern California-based outsider country songwriter, musician, and busker. His influences range from Waylon Jennings and Bruce Springsteen to Otis Redding and the Rolling Stones.

After leaving home for a decade of rambling and toiling at odd jobs, Bostick decided to try busking on the Santa Monica Pier, and found that he could make a living playing his original music. Ben saved his busking money and used it to record his debut EP, My Country, in 2016. No Depression says, “he comes on like an unholy alliance of George Jones and Merle Haggard.” My Country was nominated for an Independent Music Award in the Roots/Country category.

His self-titled debut album (2017) takes on a more progressive country tone, recalling such artists as Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson, and showcases his versatility as a songwriter. “This eponymous album is so well written that it is to look into the heart of the divine, a true great,” says Liverpool Sound & Vision.

Hellfire (2018), Bostick's sophomore release, is a collection of high energy songs written during his band's yearlong weekly residency at The Escondite in downtown Los Angeles. It was during this residency that Bostick solidified the lineup in his band and set out to write material to suit the players and the venue. Bostick describes the sound of the album as “music for driving at high speeds, moving heavy things, drinking, and fighting.”

You can find Ben at one of his many live shows around Southern California, DJing at Shoo Shoo Baby, or you might even catch him busking with his one-man-band rig down on the Santa Monica Pier.
