Ben Slip born in the Red Centre, lit his musicial fire in Stock camps around the campfire, playing songs & beats on the billy/coffee tin. Ben grew up learning to read and write by HF Radio (School of the Air). He was a bush kid, a Territory kid.

Today with melodies and lyrics, Ben Slip holds the centre in his heart and in his songs, living for the Territory big sky. Drawing from his roots.

Living in this vast beauty and open space, filters through his music today.

Ben’s influences.. U2, Sound Garden,Bruce Springsteen, Prodigy Ramstien, Tool, Metallica, T Rex, and many more great names. He lives to go… look, listen, learn and submerge himself in Festivals and concerts, and as a drummer and melody lover, Ben heads for the boiler room for Dance, Trance and Beats

While travelling world wide he has been playing and composing his songs with a balance of happening melodies, grunge and home grown lyrics, which venture across life, love, home and world issues

The Red Centre is his love, life, and inspiration Ben Slip gets air play on local, Territory and Nation wide Radio

He performs around Alice at bars, cafés and Festivals

In the recording studio Ben with a couple of mates plays the Skins, Guitars, the key’s, vocal’s and co song production
