Ben Masterson is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, record producer and founder of the band Mad Boogie. Born in Chicago, he made a name for himself locally playing clubs like Elbo Room and Schubas until deciding to move to Nashville to pursue music full time as a solo artist. Undertones of blues and R&B influences can be heard throughout his music but his soulful voice and demonic demeanor are what makes him as original as they come. His writing process stresses the idea of mining for honesty, placing it on a table and then flipping it. What still remains deserves a lyric.
