About The Artist

Located in Abbotsford

Ben Cottrill is a Canadian Americana-Soul artist with a rich Folk-Rock sound shaped by a decade of performing on stages and streets across Canada. Blending live vocal looping with the warm rhythms of piano and guitar, the one-man-band creates captivating live shows filled with old-soul personality and humour. From being chosen from 20,000 applicants across Canada to appear on CTV’s music series “The Launch” and working with Canadian legend Bryan Adams and industry mogul Scott Borchetta, to playing 500+ live shows across Canada, Ben has been a rising presence in the Canadian music scene.

His latest project “Velvet Regrets Vol.1&2” (and its accompanying short film) have been a fan favourite, selling out of all vinyl copies and hundreds of CDs since its release. Providing a taste of his upcoming album with the recent Country-Soul flavoured single “Reno”, Cottrill is heading into a new musical chapter that will surely solidify his status as a true force in the Canadian music scene.
