Ben Kadlecek is a 27 year old, Southern Rock/Alternative Country Artist from the Texas Hill Country town of Dripping Springs. Ben moved to College Station, Texas after high school to attend Texas A&M University. It was during his time as an Aggie that his passion for his music really ignited. He began regularly attending open mic nights in the area and started writing his own songs. He released a single in the middle of 2018 followed up with a 5 track debut EP "Brazos County Bound" in 2018 and a 7 song album "Secrets, Whiskey & Lies" released in March of 2021.
Ben spent months playing acoustic shows and small band shows before forming the band that backed him on shows across Texas and other southern states. What he really loves is the art of story-telling.
A piano player since the age of seven, Ben's unique gift is the fact that he can command the stage behind both a keyboard and a guitar. He treats the craft of songwriting like a puzzle, trying to find the best way to make the pieces fit while weaving a meaningful story throughout the song. His first major cut as a songwriter is one he previously released on his own project "Brazos County Bound". Amen is the lead single from Nashville recording artist Jacob Bryant's 2022 album "Barstool Preacher". Ben was busy in 2022 with singles "Ghosts" released in January and finding its way to BMI's Texas Top Ten playlist and "Tell Me" landing on Spotify's Fresh Finds Country playlist following in February.
In August 2023, Ben re-located to Nashville, Tennessee full time. Since moving he has been busy writing and recording new music. A five song project is slated for release in early 2024 and will be followed up with a string of singles in the spring and summer. 2024 is already looking to be a break out year for the young singer/songwriter. Ben Kadlecek is definitely a young artist to keep your eyes and ears on!
