Our Musical Director

Ben Swan

Ben is a multi-instrumentalist, producer and choir director from South-East London. He has been a musician for as long as he can remember, starting drums at the age of two and picking up guitar three years later. He succeeded his dad as our director in 2016, and we’re very pleased he’s with us!  His arrangements are second to none.

After attending Kingsdale Foundation School in Dulwich, where his music scholarship took him on African Drumming tours to Namibia and Rio De Janeiro, he went on to complete a diploma at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance.

Ben has since been finding his own way as a self-employed musician and choir director. He joined Ska-Punk legends Inner Terrestrials in 2014 and has since toured Europe and the U.K. playing huge festivals such as Boomtown Fair, and Fusion Festival (Germany). Musical-comedy group The Martini Encounter employed Ben as their musical director in 2015 and took him to Glastonbury in 2016 for a marvellous show in the Cabaret tent.

Ben also leads various workplace choirs across London and is the Assistant Director of London City Voices.
