Ben Joseph and the Southern Company

Welcome to the official facebook site for the British based artist, Ben Joseph.......

Ben Joseph began his musical career as a teenager in Birmingham, England, listening and being taught the acoustic guitar by his dad at the age of 11. Brought up on a blend of 1960’s American country and western, blues, and the emerging sounds of the American alternative rock scene, It wasn’t long before the first three chords he had learnt, developed into full blown covers of artists such as Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson.
At the age of 14 Ben had his first moments on stage in his dad’s family based country and western band, “The Henry James Country Experience”, as an aspiring rhythm guitarist. Playing in a fully functional and often demanding country band at such a young age, gave him a great opportunity to develop not only as a musician, but also in confidence. His personal artist influences were able to shine through within a live environment. Ben Joseph’s own musical influences originated from listening to working class American artists such as Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, and Tom Petty, artists who inspired his musical drive and give some substance to Ben’s songwriting and which also introduced him to artists such as; Phil Vassar, Keith Urban and Shawn Mullins. Last Summer Ben got the chance to travel to New Jersey, to work with a renowned producer on creating this first EP, hoping to be joined by an aspiring American Tour in the summer of 2012.

The grand plan is to be able to record a full album as soon as possible. The dream would to be able to fly to the US and record in nashville. With the generous support from fans and the money raised from digiatal downloads, and EP sales at live shows, your support could help see this album become a reality.
