About Ben Cottrill

By his mid-teens, Vancouver-based artist Ben Cottrill had already spent years as a busker and songwriter, with every spare moment dedicated to his music. And that’s just the way he likes it. With influences of classic folk, rock, and soul, his songs have a timeless beauty.

In 2015, Ben scored a spot in the RBC Emerging Artists’ Program, strengthening his career with newfound opportunities. Soon after, he ventured to Europe, returning to the west coast with unrelenting purpose. His latest release Spice-Box has more than 120,000 combined views and streams.
