Ben Wood is a 25 year-old songwriter, novelist, screenwriter, and graphic artist. Originally from the outskirts of Liverpool, England, he now lives in Vancouver, Canada, where he is completing his MFA in Creative Writing at the University of British Columbia. His songs are sparse, literate mini-epics; tracks which pull you along with subtle narration—story songs in the tradition of Bruce Springsteen, with the emotional draw of Jeff Buckley—a sound that lies somewhere in the quiet crevasse between Alt. Country and Alt. Folk.

At the age of seventeen, Ben was performing to large audiences and supporting many established artists in the UK, at venues such as the The Kashmir Klub and The Social in London; The Cavern, The Lomax, and The Masque Theatre in Liverpool; and Newcastle's Live Theatre. He has recently played well-received shows at The Backstage Lounge and The Marine Club in Vancouver.
