Ben Sage

FUN, WITTY, PASSIONATE, INSPIRING ... Ben Sage's special brand of hybrid, lo-fi Americana, in which Country, Roots Rock, Folk, Pop, R&B and Blues are like tributaries to an ever-changing river, might aptly be described as "John Lennon meets Johnny Cash," such is the diversity of his work.

Ben Sage is the stage name of singer-songwriter Bennett Neuhauser, a BMI songwriter and publisher. Bennett welcomes anyone interested in licensing or covering his songs with permission. Bennett owns his own masters and publishing rights, and is available at 630-276-6049 to directly negotiate licensing agreements for film placements, commercials, cover recordings and other uses.

In a review of Ben's most recent album, Plenty of Gold, Illinois Entertainer, the state's leading monthly music magazine, had this to say:



Though he blends gospel, country, and R&B, Ben Sage is not your traditional Americana folk artist. Over a sprawling 17 tracks, Sage mingles woodsy love songs (“Dialin’ For My Darlin’”) and religious praises (“With God”) with quirky, country-inflected folk (“You Make Me Feel Like John Wayne”) and poppy acoustic anthems (“Sun Power Me”). There’s a light-hearted irreverence that borders on parody at times, but there’s also genuinely skilled musicianship and colorful stories sprinkled throughout Plenty Of Gold.
– Patrick Conlan, Illinois Entertainer
