The amazing career of Ben Rector began inauspiciously, as the young Ben dabbled in piano as a child while
growing up in the greater suburbs of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The music bug would be a slow acting virus for Ben, who would not truly
buy into a musician lifestyle until his formative years while attending college at the University of Arkansas.
in high school, Ben would be introduced to the guitar and by his first year the U of A he would release put out his first
EP and make a big impression on the local music scene. Ben went from an impression to a major impact when he won first place
in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest while still a freshman, heralding Ben's meteoric rise to the top of the pop rock scene
first regionally and eventually across the nation. By 2008 Ben has released his first full length and was constantly on the
road whenever his busy class schedule would allow it. Now firmly entrenched in the public eye, by 2009 Rector had scooped
yet another accolade with a win from the NAMA awards for best singer songwriter within the limits of Northern Arkansas.
to be contained by the Midwest pop rock scene, Ben soon made the move to the musical mecca of Nashville, Tennessee, intent
on breaking it into the mainstream. Talent like Ben's could not be contained for long as he soon was released yet another
record and was touring alongside some of Nashville's greatest artists, including Steve Moakler and Andrew Ripp, as well as
opening for some of the biggest acts in the modern pop rock era such as Five for Fighting, Train, and Lifehouse.
continues to blow up the music scene in the Midwest and beyond, with a nationwide Rectour that sold out some of the biggest
and most happening venues all across America. Hot on the release of yet another top charting album, Ben has not slowed down
one iota as he hits the road again to spread his keen musical skills and unique pop rock sound to the masses all across North
Ben's big break into the mainstream would come with his 2010 release Into the Morning,
which would be a smash success as it immediately climbed to the #11 position on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Produced
by the visionary Chad Copelin, the album showcased a more developed Ben Rector sound that was immediately able to tap into
mainstream sensibilities. The album spawned some of Ben's most classic tracks to date, including "Out of My Head", "Autumn",
and "When I Get There".
Ben's most recent release, 203's The Walking in Between, would be his first release and yet
another example of Ben's mastery over the pop rock genre. Dropping on the Aptly Named label and produced by Jamie Kenney and
Charlie Peacock, the album peaked at the #16 position on the Billboard 200, making it one of Ben's most successful recordings
to date. Carried by the tracks "Forever Like That" and "Ordinary Love", the album is quintessential Rector that is a faithful
maturation from his debut sound of the mid 2000s.
During his 2013 headlining tour, Ben opened each
and every show with a cover of Elton John's "Bennie & The Jets", giving his backing band their nickname: 'The Jets'.
