Ben Vega has been performing for years in so Cal. He has appeared from Hollywood nightclubs, to street fairs in the Inland Empire, to Orange County charity events. Singer, songwriter, pianist, and now producer, Ben wears many hats all in the pursuit of his music. Formerly a jazz artist, Ben is taking a new direction in his career by substituting jazz standards to his original written songs. He still holds true to “his” sound by using rock guitar with big band horns.
Ben Vega, inspired by a relationship, has written his first self-produced single titled “A Year Ago”. Looking back on the then and now, recognizing the everyday life can be two separate worlds of one man. This song was written after a two-year relationship ended and remained in Ben’s journal until now. Ben is now excited to take one of his most powerful songs and bring it to life for the world to enjoy.
Artists from several So Cal groups lend their talents for this tune. Adrian Vega Jr., former lead guitarist of the Disrepair, performs an emotionally expressive solo. Adrian Vega Sr., lead trumpet player of the 3 Generations, provides an ending that captures the essence of this song in a heart throbbing fashion. Also on the track is Roman Arreola, bassist of the Beerman, supplying the perfect groove to the song, making the sound uniquely Ben Vega. Both Adrian senior and junior are father and brother of Ben, a musical family line that Ben is proud of.
