Ben Vandergaast has been honing his musical craft since he was 10 years old. When he was 12, he got the opportunity to write and perform songs with accomplished musicians at an esteemed Toronto venue, and the spark was lit.

At 30, Benni has become a go-to studio musician for drums, bass, guitar, keyboards, and vocal arrangements. He has performed live on stage with Miss Emily, Justin Rutledge, Shakura S'Aida, Daniel Romano, Tom Cochrane, The Wilkinsons, Gowan, members of The Tragically Hip, The Guess Who, Blue Rodeo, and Spin Doctors.

Benni played keyboards on Miss Emily's 2021
