Ben Levin

At only 24 years old, Ben Levin is already making his mark as a blues pianist, vocalist, and songwriter. Ben has been nominated for two Blues Music Awards (BMA), in 2020 and 2023. Based in Cincinnati, OH, Ben has been playing professionally since he was 15 years old, embracing the authentic sound of his heroes such as Professor Longhair, Pinetop Perkins, Otis Spann, and Ray Charles.

In 2021, Ben released his third album with Vizztone, “Still Here”, which debuted at #3 on iTunes Blues Charts and #10 on Billboard Blues Charts. This was Ben’s most personal album to date, as it honors his father after he recovered from a battle for his life against Covid. “Still Here” received airplay on Sirius XM Bluesville, and the first single from the album “Love and Friendship” debuted at #6 for the top 15 Rack of Blues during the first week of January.

During 2022 Ben traveled overseas to play the SwingWesplaar blues festival in Belgium, along with the Joe Bonamassa Keeping the Blues Alive Cruise in the Mediterranean.

“A bluesy old soul — it’s all right on to let the tradition rest in his hands.”
– Chris Spector, Midwest Records
