Bensbeendead. is a 25-year-old Vocalist/Producer based out of Portland, Maine. Ben has been producing and writing music for just a little over 5 years but has quickly become a driving force in the Portland music scene.

Over the past year, he has released a handful of projects that give audiences a humble introduction to Ben and his talents.
In 2020, Bensbeendead. began a creative partnership with artist and executive producer Brendan Bennett, and the two cemented their creative bond together by establishing an independent label, Off Center, with Ben and Brendan as the label’s initial focal points, along with Florida artist Eddy Rock. Ben’s first release through Off Center, “Prayer,” was featured on Spotify’s “Fresh Finds,” “Fresh Finds: Pop,” and “Modern Soft Pop” upon release.
Bensbeendead. released his first official EP GARDENING on October 14th, 2020 to acclaim from outlets like Lyrical Lemonade and Ones To Watch. To date, the project has amassed over 5 million streams across platforms and serves as a proper introduction for new audiences to the immersive world and creativity of Bensbeendead.
