Ben Standefer is a singer-songwriter based in San Francisco, California. He grew up in Texas playing music every week at church. He’s learned to play a bit of everything including drums, guitar, bass, pedal steel guitar, keyboard, pots and pans. After years of listening to a questionable mix of Nelly, pop-punk, and 70’s country, he realized songwriting and originality were the most important aspects of music. He set out on a mission to become a prolific songwriter. His hero is Texas country die-hard Robert Earl Keen, who has been writing and releasing music consistently for 30 years.
Ben’s debut release, Where We Go, is the initial breakthrough in a long road ahead, full of many songs.
While not rocking, Ben enjoys computers, long-distance running, snowboarding, beer, and eating tacos. It’s a pretty simple formula, really.
