Ben Betts

On any given day it is likely that you will find Ben jamming on his steel drums in the streets of Santa Barbara. It is there he discovered, through hours of daily practice and repetition, a deep sense of serenity and calm that emerges from the musical landscape. In his performances, Ben’s goal is to create a space where any passerby can commune in that shared sensation.

When Ben’s not playing gigs or busking on the street, he spends his time exploring different areas of the arts and nature. During the pandemic Ben has been writing and recording his second solo album as well working as a studio musician/producer for other artists. He also dabbles in painting local scenes, construction, and farming avocados.
