Eighteen-year-old singer, songwriter, and multidimensional artist Ben Goldsmith would like to tell you he “never could’ve imagined” this for himself, but he’s quick to note that – call it confidence or a preternatural headstrongness years in the making – it’d just not be true. “In a way, I’ve been working towards this since I was 3 or 4,” he says. “I’ve never strayed. It’s the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do.”

That “thing” Ben’s referring to is making music – more than music, it’s lyrically-driven art free from genre, with a sharp point of view and melodies as strong as some of the teen’s many influences. Ben was born and bred on acts like Aerosmith, Dave Mathews Band, Elton John, Queen, Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, and Bob Dylan. Modern artists like Zach Bryan, Maggie Rogers, Steve Lacy, and Sam Fender helped round out his style and his sonic influences, drawing inspiration from the sort of iconoclasts who, like Ben, float between worlds, genres, and sounds, a jack and master of all trades.

Having released his debut album, The World Between My Ears, in 2023 – before he even graduated – Ben now turns the page on his next chapter. “For the first album, it was a more tight-knit circle approach, which really worked at the time while I was still in high school,” Ben says. “However, as soon as I closed the door on the last season and opened the door to this new era, I knew from the get-go that I needed to expand and take a drastically different approach.” In Nashville, Ben is working with the likes of Jon Green, Natalie Hemby, Alex Hope, Laura Veltz, Caitlyn Smith, Brad Tursi (Old Dominion), and more. He has also been making consistent trips to Los Angeles where he has spent consecutive days with Dan Wilson, Leroy Clampitt, Rick Nowels, Sean Douglas, and Casey Smith, to name a few.

“My goals are incredibly high for this next wave of music, there are so many different musical avenues to explore with the amazing writers and creatives I’ve been working with lately,” he says. As word spreads amongst the community, Ben is garnering interest from A-list songwriters around the world and will soon make a trip to London, in addition to his continued stints out in Los Angeles.
