Ben Bishop is a 22-year-old musician based in East Sussex. Having grown up near Tunbridge Wells, he moved to Brighton to study a music production degree in September 2013, so that he could take his love for songwriting and composition a step further. Since 2015, Ben has been writing and recording under his new alias ‘Cali Santo’, with ambitions to write, self-produce and release his first full length album in the summer of 2017. 

Ben’s songwriting style is heavily influenced by the rock and folk music of the late 1960’s and 70’s, with artists like Bob Dylan and Neil Young taking centre stage as his personal music idols. Drawing inspiration from modern artist/producers like Jonathan Wilson and Justin Vernon, he now hopes to be able to express himself artistically by writing and recording his own music for years to come.
