Benjamin Stapp

Tubist and composer, Ben Stapp, is on the forefront in New York’s creative music scene. With his debut CD release featuring Tony Malaby and Satoshi Takeishi, he has received a critic’s pic from the New York Times. All About Jazz praised, “most certainly one to watch,” and “a debut of a fresh new sound.”

TV appearances include CNBC with the NYJA All Stars and the Cissy Gram Show with Maud in Cahoots.

While living in Europe, he played in numerous Euro/international festivals including Festival do Sodeste, Gulbenkian August Music Festival, Festival of New Music in Krems and the Barcelos Music Festival. Radio Europa caught sight of his success and featured him with a 45 -minute interview where he spoke about his music and his life in Portugal.
