About Ben Baxter Band
After attending the Austin Live Music Academy in 2009, Ben decided to turn his solo acoustic act into a full-band experience. With the addition of home-town chum, Britton Byfield, the two began writing songs and developing the new sound. Within the year, Ben Baxter formed a four-piece band, including Joe Strelsky and Dom Ferrario. " Drawing heavy influence from blues, R&B and reggae, their sound is most easily compared to Jack Johnson or G. Love and Special Sauce, but they cannot easily be categorized." - The Daily Texan In 2010, the group won the southern region of Chegg's "National College Battle of the Bands". The band also gained local media attention after being dubbed "Austin's answer to Jack Johnson," by UWEEKLY. Their high energy live shows keep the audience grooving and dancing to their authentic sound of funk, soul, and good ol' rock and roll. "It's kind of like Lenny Kravitz and Dave Matthews had a bastard kid" - radio caller on Austin's Rock 93.7 FM. The band recently released their debut album, "Illume", which can be found on most online digital music distributors sites including iTunes.
