Ben Wagner's smooth, earthy vocals, humor, and impressive songwriting has earned him spots as a finalist for Shepherd Express' Best Acoustic Musician Award and the Great American Song Contest, along with being named "New and Notable" by NoiseTrade and "One to Watch" by Nashville Songwriters Association International. Ben's formation began while playing guitar and singing at churches and summer camps in college. Ben earned spots at many of the essential music venues around his hometown of Milwaukee such as the Bradley Center, Summerfest, and Cedarburg Summer Sounds. In 2017, Ben went down to Nashville and found himself in a conversation with a former Kenny Chesney producer at a bar. Ben received a referral and spent much of 2017 driving back and forth from Nashville to record. Ben's wholesome, critically-praised debut album Midwestern Comfort was released in June 2018.
