Ben Johnson


Ben Johnson is a songwriter and producer signed to a joint publishing venture with Nashville-based Tape Room Music and LA-based APG. Johnson, who currently resides in Nashville, is also signed to Stoney Creek Records/BBR with his band Track45, comprised of Johnson and his two sisters, Jenna and KK. Originally from Meridian, Mississippi, Johnson grew up with aspirations to pursue a music career in Nashville. He played piano and cello along with many other instruments, ultimately laying foundation for him to produce records as he got older. At age 19, Johnson moved to Nashville to attend Belmont University with a cello scholarship. He quickly began writing two songs a day. As he continued to write better and better songs and refine his skills making tracks, Johnson started gaining the attention of hit writers in Nashville and LA. Four years into this dedicated process, Johnson met award winning songwriter Ashley Gorley who stepped in as a mentor and coach. Each month, Johnson sent Gorley what he’d been working on — proving his tenacity and work ethic — and in turn, Gorley provided feedback on his music. In 2018, Johnson got the break of a lifetime when Charlie Puth cut his song “Patient” which earned him a publishing joint-venture with APG and Tape Room in Jan. 2019. Since then, Johnson has had cuts by Justin Timberlake, Meek Mill, Thomas Rhett, Kane Brown, HARDY and more. He has also produced projects for UMG Country artist Kylie Morgan (alongside hit songwriter/producer Shane McAnally), Tape Room Records’ Hunter Phelps and Republic Records recording artist some girl named anna.
