Overview

Award winning Canberra Indie Folk Artist Ben Drysdale will release his highly anticipated single ‘Listen Now’ to raise money and awareness for suicide prevention. Ben's poignant ballad, 'Listen Now,' which secured 2nd place in the prestigious Hawaii Songwriting Festival's competition in 2023, is a heartfelt tale about supporting a friend through alcoholism and dire mental health challenges.

‘Listen Now’ is an ode to anyone who is going through mental health challenges and a message of assurance that they are not alone. It is also a plea for men to defy societal stigmas and embrace vulnerability by seeking assistance when needed.

Ben's musical journey, spanning over two decades, has seen him grace stages across Australia, Canada, USA and Ireland, both as a solo artist and fronting various bands.

His songs span from vulnerable and visceral ballads exploring the darkness of the human condition such as ‘Listen Now’, to upbeat foot stompers full of energy and hope.

Ben's unique fusion of folk and pop melodies, coupled with introspective lyricism, has garnered widespread acclaim.
