Jason Walker and The Tender Mercies

Friday 17 August 2018 (opening 8:00 PM)

at The Stag & Hunter Hotel ( venue info )
187 Maitland Rd, Mayfield NSW


Raised on Kamilaroi country, Ben grew up on a small farm on the North West Slopes & Plains of NSW. He first picked up his father’s Maton guitar as an early teenager and began writing songs before he even knew how to play. He offers up a soulful blend of minimalistic alt country, Americana, folk and blues.

Citing influence from rhythm & blues icon Sam Cooke as well as Jay Farrar, Steve & Justin Townes Earle, Jason Isbell, Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch, Ben’s resonant voice and playing intertwine to offer up a rare honesty that commands attention opening up his heart and leaving it on the table. He is carving himself a niche, touching on subjects that other songwriters wouldn’t dare attempt. Fragile yet confronting and always honest, Ben will make you run the gamut of emotion
