Ben Dowling

Jazz pianist and composer Ben Dowling takes the long view when it comes to music and his artistic-life journey. Born in Arkansas, raised in New York, Vermont and Boston but settled in Los Angeles, Dowling smiles at his conflicting geographical history, “so I'm this Southern white boy who knows how to shovel snow, design synthesizers and play jazz. Go figure...”

The one thing this player does figure is how to push music to the next level. Whether from the synthesizers he's designed (Korg M1, Wavestation, Oasys, etc.), the multimedia and film projects he's scored (United Nations documentaries and interactive games), or in his producing and keyboard playing, Ben knows how to push the envelope forward while being true to the musical essentials.
