BEN CARON + THE JOY MACHINE
Ben Caron is a Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter, and an Iowa native. Known for his full and clear vocals and endearing and entertaining stage presence, Ben seems to approach each of his songs from a pivotal point of view of the “every-man” and delivers a powerful performance that resonates with his audiences.
