GEARS UP FOR DEBUT ALBUM, THE WORLD BETWEEN MY EARS,RELEASING SEPTEMBER 22
17-year-old pop, genre-bending singer-songwriter Ben Goldsmith released his latest track, “Blown Away.” Written by Goldsmith and Bobby Bare Jr., the song will appear on his debut album, The World Between My Ears, set to arrive September 22. Listen to “Blown Away”.
Goldsmith co-wrote each of the 15 tracks on his debut album, The World Between My Ears. In addition to “Blown Away,” the collection includes several other tracks released earlier this year: “Flowers In Your Hair,” “It’ll All Be Alright,” and “Wolves.” The World Between My Ears is a result of the singer traveling back and forth to Nashville during the Covid years to write songs, create his own sound, and woodshed in the studio with Brad Jones (Hayes Carll, Chuck Prophet, Ron Sexsmith), who he co-produced the project with. The album illustrates Goldsmith’s broad, melody driven and soulful musical palette.
2023 is shaping up to be a breakout year for the multidimensional artist. In June, not only did Goldsmith graduate high school (a year early), but he also announced his signing to Sony Music, UTA, and Universal Music Publishing Group. One week later, he took the stage at the iconic music festival, Bonnaroo. The singer was also named to The Hollywood Reporter’s “Emerging Artists 18 and Under” club for music – read here.
Goldsmith’s musical journey started at four years old (where his violin teacher discovered he had perfect pitch) and has included jazz guitar studies at The Manhattan School of Music and Mannes College of Music in NY. Ben recorded an EP of original music at 11 years old and played all of the instruments. He developed a commanding onstage presence performing live in School of Rock programs, local community events, fairs and clubs by the time he was 12 years old. At 13 he perfected his guitar skills with Tomo Fujita, whose teaching résumé includes Berklee College of Music and John Mayer.
Goldsmith is set to open to Jack Bott’s “Sucker for Sunsets North American Tour” this fall. For more information on Goldsmith, visit BenGoldsmith.net, and to watch past live performances, visit his YouTube.
