Ben Friedman @ La Playa
Ben Friedman is a songwriter and producer from Santa Rosa Beach, FL. Never one to occupy a single genre, he has written and produced music over a wide spectrum of styles. In 2003 Friedman formed Free Monica, an acoustic pop-rock band, with local singer/songwriter, Kyle LaMonica. The band released two full-length studio albums before his desire to seek other forms of expression pulled him in other directions. Some of his notable projects include alternative hard-rock band Stealing Mona, a reggae album titled "Roadblock Runna" featuring local artist, Donnie Sundal, and a collection of Nashville-produced Country songs.
