Ben Rector

Biography

Nashville-based singer/songwriter Ben Rector makes passionate and melodic, piano-driven, adult alternative contemporary pop. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1986, he studied piano while he was growing up and by his teens was also singing, playing guitar, and writing his own music. However, it wasn't until he was studying at the University of Arkansas that he began recording his songs. A self-titled EP Rector released during his freshman year at college caught on locally and soon he was playing live shows. By the time he graduated in 2009, he had released two full-length albums including 2007's Twenty Tomorrow and 2008's Songs That Duke Wrote. After college, Rector relocated to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue a career as both a songwriter and performer. In 2010, he released his third studio album, Into the Morning, which reached the number 11 spot on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Also around this time, Rector began nabbing headlining slots for such established acts as Five for Fighting and Dave Barnes. In 2011, he returned with the album Something Like This, which also received positive attention — especially for an independent release — climbing into the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 chart. In 2013, Rector released his fifth studio album, The Walking in Between.
