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.
