Ben Eunson Ben Eunson

One of a new generation of guitarists who seek to redefine the sound of the guitar for both the present moment and the future, Ben Eunson is beginning to establish his presence as a newly emerging guitar voice in the NYC music scene.

Born in Melbourne, Australia, Ben Eunson began focusing on the guitar from age 10 onward. During his teenage years, Eunson was accepted to study music at the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School – a school that provided him the opportunity to study with some of Australia's finest musicians. During this time, he began to perform regularly at live music venues throughout Melbourne, playing regularly with figures in Australian Jazz such as Tony Gould and John Hoffman.

Eunson relocated to the United States in 2011, receiving a scholarship to attend New England Conservatory in Boston. During this time, he was given the opportunity to study with key figures in Jazz such as Jerry Bergonzi and Dave Holland, while also using this time to furthermore develop his own approach to improvisation.

Currently based in New York City, Eunson has shared the stage with musicians such as Dave Liebman, David Weiss, Myron Walden, Marcus Strickland, and many more.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
