Ben Friedman is a songwriter and producer from Santa Rosa Beach, FL. While he made his start writing acoustic rock tunes in the band Free Monica, he has since written and produced music from a wide spectrum of musical genres. This diverse background makes his live performances a genre-jumping, style-bending montage of classic songs both old and new. Equipped with an acoustic guitar, loop and FX pedals, Friedman layers sounds to create full, rhythmic arrangements without the aid of prerecorded tracks. These days, his sets tend to lean more towards the funkier, dancer side, always with the purpose of inspiring people to move to the groove.
