Ben Catley

Ben Catley (WA)

Thursday 9th March, 9pm. Free Entry.

Fresh off the back of sets at Blues at Bridgetown Festival, supporting Ash Grunwald, Mat McHugh (The Beautiful Girls), OKA and Mosquito, and touring over east with Kallidad, Ben Catley will be bringing his own brand of upbeat, feel-good acoustic blues and roots to Settlers Tavern. Expect grooving foot-stomping, lively guitar playing, powerful vocals and a hell of a stage presence that arguably boasts the energy of a full band and will be sure to get you on your feet.

Following his upbeat bluesy EP, Move Fast, Ben released his latest single, What's Riding, which took him to No.7 in the TripleJ Unearthed roots/rock chart. "A seriously catchy little thing with a pumping groove" - AMNPLIFY.

Ben also released a remix of the track, collaborating with Californian producer, Boulger, and Perth MC, Bluntfield.

"A killer genre mash-up, with Catley's grungey guitar riffs and gritty vocals working perfectly over a tough hip hop beat" - PILERATS.

After a manic 2016, 2017 will see Ben sharing stages with Diesel, Blue Shaddy, Mosquito Coast, Toby, Matty T Wall and more, while heading back in the studio for a new single and EP before heading back over east and to UK/Europe.
