About Ben McKelvey

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. My mother put me into piano lessons when I was only four years old. Ever since then, I play the piano whenever a lyric or melody comes to me. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Lana Del Rey, Norman F*****g Rockwell! Phoebe Bridgers, Punisher Taylor Swift, 1989 (Deluxe Edition) 1989 (Deluxe Edition), Norman F****ing Rockwell, and Punisher were some of the first albums I listened to that made me want to create music. Those three albums have really manifested themselves throughout my music as I make and release it, too. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Don't Turn on the Lights (Two Year Anniversary Remix)” This is a remixed version of a song I released as part of my 2021 EP. It might be one of my favorite pieces of music I've created in my career thus far. I'm really proud of this one. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? When I released my debut single, "Tear Me Apart," I was with a bunch of my friends in Ohio and we all celebrated that it had come out, it was really exciting. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? I want to release my first full-length album. At the time this is being written, October of 2022, I'm working on it. It's more ready than it has been so far, but I still have some things to do with it. I'm really excited about it. It'll come soon.
