A fun-loving entertainer and storyteller with a huge heart for his family and community, Ben Klick is the guitar-slinging country gentleman. Klick, Canadian-born and raised, started his journey at 4 years old singing into a purple plastic microphone wearing a Fisher-Price electric guitar to Shania Twain, Great Big Sea, and the musical, Grease. After seeing Shania in concert in the Summer of 2001, Klick’s parents surprised him with a guitar for Christmas, and went straight into lessons at age 5. Classically trained by the book to read music notation moved on to reading tablature and studying iconic guitarists like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton, which then lead to learning music theory and transcribing songs by ear. In the following years, Klick entered numerous competitions in the interior of British Columbia, Canada, garnered multiple wins, and played opening slots at local outdoor festivals wherever he could.
Klick’s love is writing strong, ear-catching melodies, and creating ideas that come to life through music. His first 2 EP’s were released in 2015 and 2018, garnering national radio airplay, as well as international airplay in Poland, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
Alongside his love to entertain, play guitar, and write songs, Klick loves to connect personally with all of his fans on social media. He also founded, organized, and ran “Music Fest MS” in Kelowna, BC, bringing the MS Society of Canada, the BC Interior, and fans of country music together not only raising awareness for Multiple Sclerosis, but raising over $35,000 in a single day selling over 400 tickets, collecting national donations, hosting a silent auction and draw baskets, and setting up an online donation site.
Having 4 British Columbia Country Music Awards, 5 International Country Music Awards, a Top 40 Under 40 Business Excellence Award, being a Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award recipient, and an Okanagan College Distinguished Young Alumni, Ben Klick continues to entertain audiences with his guitar-driven, modern country sound with a traditional twist.
