Ben Jansz

Ben Jansz is an Australian Folk/Roots musician, currently living in the Northern Rivers of NSW.

Passionate about music since the age of 10, Ben has always aspired to create and share his sounds with the world. Getting his first residency gig at the young age of 16, he has continued to perform across Australia ever since.

Releasing his EP ‘Follow Your Feet’ in 2016, at his first ticketed event, supporting Kim Churchill, Ben's reputation began to flourish. He has since supported Josh Pyke in Melbourne, toured the Northern Territory, supporting Thirsty Merc in Alice Springs, and New Zealand, supported by Coco Michelle, releasing a live album in 2019 'Live at Baha'

He has been featured at several festivals across Australia including Dragon Dreaming, Rabbits Eat Lettuce, Bohemian Beatfreaks, Tropical Bloom, and Byron Bay Guitar Festival.

Ben Jansz’s sound can be described as Aussie Roots/Forest Folk with elements of Organic Trance. Inspired by nature's sounds and ancestral symphonies, and musical influences such as John Butler, Xavier Rudd, and Matt Corby, he has been said to combine some of their most remarkable qualities with his own captivating vocals and skilful use of multiple instruments, creating the distinctive Ben Jansz sound.
