The stage is set and the lights are dim (It’s not the lead singer everyone is here to see). Then…..you hear it – the slow beat of the drums and the clashing cymbals (boom boom boom…..tish! ) – Ben Isackson has arrived on the voice scene.
In walks Ben. He’s got the swagger of a cool rockstar. Leather pants, wrist cuffs, chains. It’s 1am and he’s just finished his set on stage. Packing the musician gear away, and another side of Ben takes shape.
You know the saying….”but first coffee”? That’s Ben. Go on, sit down and have one with him. He can be the larrikin who has a joke for every conversation – but will also keep you on the straight and narrow as the voice of reason. A great conversationalist, Ben can see both sides of the story. The type of guy, who will always have your back. You want to be best friends with him – why?? Because your secrets will absolutely go in Ben’s vault. He’s the man to trust. Locked up tight.
Being on the music scene allows Ben to really know how to work his voice. He can drop the register low, get up close – and pull the listener in. A serious message, requires a serious Ben. Bring it up and it’s a younger, more excited Ben behind the mic. The latest TV promo you hear, has you setting an alarm for it. Enrolments for university have started – mark open day in your calendar. So really now, you’re technically “keeping up with Ben”.
That rockstar “too cool persona”, isn’t the Ben of “everyday”. He 100% a softie with a big heart. He’s not shy to show his emotions or cry while watching a tear-jerking movie. His sincerity can pull at all the heartstrings and show you his raw self. Ben doesn’t just make the dinner reservations – he’s pre-chilled the wine, and arranged a degustation of bite sized entrees for you.
So sit down and get comfy. Ben’s in the booth now, you have nothing to worry about.
