Ben Gage is a songwriter and performer from Akron, OH. His songs pull heavily from his roots surrounded by a hard working family, Northeast Ohio countryside, and living in one of the greatest cities in the Rust Belt.
Ben was a founding member of the regional bluegrass band The Gage Brothers where he played various percussion, harmonica, mandolin, and sang. Now he swapped the mandolin for a guitar, and does all of that at once. His live performances are a fancy take on rubbing your belly and patting your head.
His self titled EP "Ben Gage" is a taste of the song writing to come. He paired up with Kevin Martinez of The Speedbumps (Upright Bass), Christine Petersilge (Cello, Vocals and Album artwork), Nathan Hunter (Accordion), and local great Gretchen Pleuss (Vocals) to bring some thoughts to life.
