Collingwood's cosmic cowboy, Ben Mastwyk & His Millions deliver new dimensions in country music with their swaggering, psychedelic honky tonk. From Tokyo to Tennessee, Mastwyk's rhinestones and gold suits demand attention, but it's his songs, rich with meaning and truth—real and raw—that will stay with you.

About Ben Mastwyk

Melbourne cosmic-country-rocker BEN MASTWYK writes his songs on the move. Planes, trains, rivers and highways set the mood. “There’s something about the rhythm of the world rolling by that stimulates the process” he explains. Gold-suited and rhinestoned, Mastwyk leads his seven-piece band THE MILLIONS into bold sonic territories where songs erupt into swaggering, psychedelic bar-room gems. 

As a teenage noise-rocker, Mastwyk’s love of twang was instilled when he rode shotgun on the production of a family country record, exposing him to artists such as Cash, Kristofferson & Parsons and firmly establishing his love of classic country music. At art school he picked up a banjo and joined Jemma Rowlands and her Clifton Hillbillies leading to performances in Nashville TN and Austin TX; then a borrowed guitar spawned a flood of songwriting culminating in his 2015 debut album Mornin Evenin. Further journeys across America’s south inspired his second, more sonically diverse album, Winning Streak. 

With a growing reputation as a dynamic entertainer and applauded songwriter, Mastwyk has become an artist to watch in the Australian country music scene.  Twice nominated for Best Country Album (Music Victoria Awards), Mastwyk has toured his songs around Australia, NZ and the USA receiving high rotation across national radio. His third album, 2021’s LIVIN ON GOLD STREET, debuted at #1 on the Australian Independent charts and #2 on the ARIA Australian Country charts.


Press quotes
