Fans have described Ben's style as a mix between diverse vocals and `ukulele virtuosity. He plays a diverse range of music and mixes in stories between songs.
Born and raised on the island of Kaua`i, Ben studied piano, trumpet, and baritone before learning the four-stringed `ukulele. He graduated from Southern Oregon University with an MA in Teaching, a BA in Writing, with a minor in Human Communication. During that time, he recorded two independent albums with his band Melemana.
