Ben Sparaco and The New Effect formed in 2017 when Florida-born singer, songwriter, and guitarist Ben Sparaco began playing with drummer Anthony Quirk and bassist Adam Discipio.
Based in Nashville, TN, Ben and the band have maintained a massive touring schedule, cutting their teeth playing coast to coast in clubs and festivals.
Sparaco spent his teen years making a name for himself in the jam band scene of the southeast, playing with members of the Allman Brothers Band, Dead and Company, Tedeschi Trucks Band, and more before he had turned 20. This included a touring stint with late Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks. After recording his 2016 release "Bring The Jubilee - EP" with a Florida-based group of musicians, Sparaco moved to Nashville. There, he recorded his debut solo record "Wooden" with producer Ross Holmes (Mumford and Sons, Bruce Hornsby, Warren Haynes).
After solidifying The New Effect’s lineup with Berklee College of Music graduates Quirk and Discipio, Sparaco’s songwriting started drifting from his southern rock and folk roots, showcasing more indie rock, new wave, and psychedelic elements, evident on the EP “Greetings, from Ben Sparaco and The New Effect." Followed up by the even more polished, synth-driven single "Scared of The Dark" in late 2018, the trio toured in support of G. Love and Special Sauce in 2019, played multiple national headlining dates, and was named one of Relix Magazine's "Artists You Should Know."
