Ben Shooter

NJ/NYC singer-songwriter Ben Shooter hates being pinned down to one genre. He’s been performing solo and with various bands since he was a teen, and has a wide appreciation for all kinds of music. When it comes to his solo work, Shooter prefers the following blend: 80s new-wave instrumentation, the hard-hitting drums and guitars of classic rock, and his own country tinged acoustic guitar and lyrical voice underlying it all. In February 2024, Shooter released his most recent single “Iced Coffee (The Country Life)”, a song inspired by "cosmic American" country influences like Gram Parsons and Kacey Musgraves. Shooter also performs, writes, and records with NYC gothic-pop band Her Dark Heaven, Jersey City psych-rock act Sir Synthesis, and Montclair pop singer Natalie Lucas.
