BENJAMIN WARD is a Sydney-based vocalist, pianist, musical director and composer. Born into a family of musicians, Benjamin’s love affair with music began at age three, when he sat down at his mother’s piano and taught himself to play. From there, a life- long journey of musical exploration began. His formal studies in classical piano laid strong musical foundations, but it’s in the worlds of musical theatre, jazz and soul where Benjamin began to find himself and flourish as an artist. In his early career, Benjamin toured extensively as a performer throughout Australia, Japan, and the United States, and has written for, musically directed and coached numerous productions and solo artists back home in Sydney. In 2010 he stepped away from his professional career in music, though never stopped writing and playing. After an almost 10-year hiatus, Benjamin returned to the studio as a self-produced writer, vocalist and multi- instrumentalist, releasing new music under the artist name Benjamin Peter.
