With two albums to date nominated for Best Country Album (The Age Music Victoria Awards), high rotation on national radio and clips airing on CMC, Melbourne artist Ben Mastwyk has certainly caught the attention of fans and industry alike. Mastwyk’s whiskey-tinged warble imbues his image-laden storytelling with echoes of Gene Clark, Willie Nelson, Townes Van Zandt and Hank Williams. Along with his band, THE MILLION$, songs erupt into psychedelic honky-tonk gems. Mastwyk has toured his songs around Australia, New Zealand and the USA including a solo performance at Nashville's iconic Bluebird Cafe and supports for Sam Outlaw and Robbie Fulks.
2018's Winning Streak “explodes the delicate poise of excellent debut "Mornin, Evenin" with lashings of cosmic American pedal steel and psych-guitar glitz. For fans of Flying Burrito Bros, Daniel Romano and their ilk, Winning Streak will be a hard album to top in 2018." (Country Update)
“…A direct line to heartache, Mastwyk has captured the soul of country music."

"The songs are rich with meaning and truth…real and raw, just as true country music should be.”
