Years Performed: 2017
Ben Racine’s soulful voice is reminiscent of the greatest rhythm and blues vocalists of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Inspired by artists such as Junior Walker, Bill Withers, Stevie Wonder and Clarence Carter, he will take you back to the days when vocals were the center point of music.
Ben’s also a lot more than just a voice. His guitar playing covers a wide range of styles – pleasing blues and funk fan alike. At this year’s International Blues Challenge, Ben won the Albert King Award for best guitar performance in a band. From the moment he hits the stage, his contagious energy and charisma combine for a sound that is truly original. You’ll be tapping your feet within the first few notes.
