Written by Chief Editor.

Amazon and iTunes now have Ben Babylon's new single, Burning Man.


Ben started studying piano at the age of 4, under the direction of his late father, Guy Babylon, who was Elton's Grammy-winning keyboard player and arranger. Since then, the young performer has remained close to Elton's group, and worked on a number of songs with them, including Burning Man.

Babylon, who plays piano and provides lead vocals, is joined on Burning Man by members of the Ben Babylon Band: Alex Aranout (bass), Jagger Krusen (drums) and Brian Schwartz (guitar), along with percussionist John Mahon (from Elton's band and background vocals by Aaron Burch. The single was mixed by multi-Grammy-winning record producer Paul Brown, who happens to be Babylon's uncle.

There's also a 6-song EP available from Ben, whose Facebook page showcases artwork from it.
