About Ben Pearson

The best music develops organically, usually from a mixture of inspiration and perseverance. Most popular artists have stories to tell about their journey into the diverse soundscape of contemporary music - not least Ben Pearson. Aged 25, Ben has actively fuelled his passion for playing and writing music ever since the initial spark when he started on the piano at eight years old. But music is not Ben's only passion. His commitment to sharing the life-changing message of the gospel of Jesus Christ has been at the very heart of his motivation on his musical journey.

Masterplan (2006) was Ben's first release, comprising an aspiring showcase of his early material. Uncompromising lyrics and innovative production made this record standout, with its uplifting arrangements and edgy pop vibes. The Moment (2009) represented a maturing of Ben’s music both lyrically and sonically, drawing on influences from classical composers to contemporary artists.

Having graduated with a 1st class degree in music composition, at 25 Ben’s patiently crafted sound exhibits a depth and maturity beyond his years. His talents as a producer/arranger come into their own on his self- produced debut album What the Eye Can’t See (2011). From the driving synth-pop opener “Faith”, through the cinematic soundscape of the title track, concluding with the soul-tinged piano ballad “Don’t Lose Yourself”, this album offers contemporary pop sensibility fussed with innovative and ingenious arrangements.

Ben has been leading worship for many years including at his home church Renewal Christian Centre in Birmingham. In 2013 Ben wrote a new anthem for worship - The Divine Exchange, available on iTunes with a guest vocal appearance from celebrated Birmingham gospel singer Claudette Schlitter. Ben seeks to write worship songs that will inspire, encourage and build the church.   

With several of his tracks having already received national radio airplay and growing enthusiasm for his live performances Ben is certainly an artist to look out for. Whether against the captivatingly produced backdrop of What the Eye Can’t See, or live in a café with a piano, Ben’s melodies speak for themselves. He has performed to audiences a thousand strong but is equally at home in intimate acoustic settings where he enjoys being able to share the stories behind the songs.

In January 2014 Ben became the Music Director for Teen Challenge UK a Christian charity helping people with life-controlling addictions originally pioneered by Pastor David Wilkinson (The Cross and the Switchblade) in New York. As part of his role He leads and coaches a vocal group TC Music who tour churches across the UK with a presentation where team members share their miraculous stories of hope. Mightier is Ben's latest work comprising seven original songs written and produced by himself. From the stirringly strong opening title track with it's big production and majestic soundscape, to the intimate heartfelt duet Child of the King this album has something for everyone. Available from the Teen Challenge store - please see our online shop for this link. All the proceeds from this album go straight back into the work of Teen Challenge helping to put hope within the reach of every addict.
