Live Music with ' Ben Ransom ' at the Tathra Hotel on Sat 24th and Sun 25th Nov. 4:30 - 7:30pm. Free admission.
Born and raised in Sydney, Ben Ransom, started playing guitar and writing song at the age of fifteen. Growing up, he was constantly exposed to a broad range of music that strongly influences his own original writing style. It has allowed Ben to draw the listener in on many different levels and connect in a more personal way.
January 12, 2018 sees the release of the album – “101” - along with the simultaneously released single, “Same Song, Different Day”. The song has massive mainstream potential - leaning more into a classic rock sound, blended with tones reminiscent of Tom Petty.
"This is without a doubt the longest pre-production I've had for an album, which goes to show how much thought and effort has gone into this release. From the songwriting - which meant sorting through roughly fifty songs - all the way through to production ... so I can honestly say this is the definitive story of who I am musically", says Ben. "This album will ROCK, but there's still a few surprises in there to satisfy fans of all the flavours of country music!"
Most recently, Ben has teamed up with 80's Pop Icon 'Sharon O'Neill' to release a cover of the Dragon classic 'Young Years' which Sharon actually wrote with her partner Alan Mansfield.
