RAVENSCROFT CONCERT SERIES – Benjamin Cortez
Benjamin Cortez is a multi-instrumental musician who breathes new life into the classic music of the 60s and 70s with his soulful, high-energy performances on vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass guitar, and drums. His diverse musical sensibilities reflect the eclectic cultural landscape of his hometown: Phoenix, Arizona.
In his time living there, he has jumped at every opportunity to better his craft, having been recruited to do live and session work for high-profile acts ranging from contemporary Christian artist Matt Maher to punk rock band Authority Zero, in addition to leading his own band.
In 2018, he released his first album, “In Your Hands”, featuring eight original compositions that he performed, recorded, and mixed himself at his home studio. In addition to his professional music ventures, he recently completed a degree in Jazz Piano Performance at Arizona State University.
