Ben Edgar is a singer-songwriter based in Sydney, Australia. His origins in percussive music and his love of folk led him to fuse the two styles, forging his unique sound as a singer and percussive guitarist.

Born and raised on New Zealand's North Island, Ben grew up in a musical family where he followed in the footsteps of his older brothers, learning to use percussive instruments at 7 years old. His first picked up a guitar at age 13, and soon after, began to experiment with songwriting. 

After spending time abroad in France, helping him realize writing and performing was his joie de vivre, Ben moved to Sydney in 2013 and studied music/songwriting for a few years. Soon after, he began playing shows locally, performing in venues such as the Cafe Lounge, Gingers, and the Hibernian House. 

In 2020/21 he recorded his debut EP with friend and producer Billy Otto in Byron Bay. The 3 singles off the EP - We’re Still Young, Cornerstones, and All We’ve Got, were featured on multiple playlists, music blogs, and indie music magazines, earning reviews from the likes of The A&R Factory and Amie Kitainik from RGM Australia, who said “Edgar delivers fantastic folk-pop here, giving us beautiful melodies, sincere lyrics and delicate guitars…”

His debut EP We’re Still Young was released on October 21st, 2022.

New music coming in 2024.
