Ben Shaham

Growing up with musically talented parents with his mom being a pianist and his dad an accordionist, Ben had an ear for music from a very young age.  Young Ben started playing percussion in school, banging on anything he could get his hands on.  When he turned 7, Ben got his hands on his first guitar…it was love at first sight!  Never wanting to put it down, Ben practiced and played all genres of music and even began writing songs and creating his own beats.  

A couple decades later, Ben was gifted with a bass guitar from his father-in-law.  Falling in love with the rhythm and groove that the bass has to offer, Ben developed a new musical passion.  Looking forward to bringing that rhythm and groove to the stage with The Phoenix Theory, Ben is more than excited and honored to continue learning, growing, and jamming with Allen, Billy, Phil, and Lauren.
