With over forty years of performing in regional and metropolitan Australia, Warrnambool-born singer-songwriter Ben Witham performs live in concert, bringing his compelling poetry in song of human experience - love, heartbreak, fairness, the quirky and more.

Some glowing tributes:

  • "…depth, poignant imagery and emotive musical staging in the style of legendries Leonard Cohen and James Taylor."
    Don Stewart, Unmuzzled Music Productions, Warrnambool

  • “…intelligent, thought provoking; sometimes wry and laced with humour, and a band of some of the best musicians around.” 
    Carol McDonald, Convenor, 15 Minutes of Fame, Crossley

  • We should be so proud and honoured to have great bands like Ben Witham's in our midst.' 
    Uncle Lenny Clarke, Gunditjmara Elder, Framlingham

  • “…worthy flag bearers for the southwest music scene in evocative songs.”
    David Dawson, music journalist, Nu Country TV host, Melbourne

  • “...powerful original music with soul and insight; bright, dark, passionate.”
