Benjamin William Hastings is a Northern Irish singer, songwriter. Raised on the streets of Belfast but spending the better part of his twenties in Sydney, Australia; Hastings fell in love with A beautiful girl who too shared a love for words and six months later they decided to share a name. Around that same time Hastings fell in with a church crowd who just so happened to be some of Jessa’s childhood friends and that motley crew was Hillsong United. Since featuring on “So Will I (100 Billion X) he’s written a whole lot of songs which, if you add them all together have been streamed over 500 Million times.
Recently, Hastings and his family moved to Los Angeles, CA. His latest solo offering explores the ongoing wrestle of exercising faith (among other things) and to be honest it may be a little more honest than you’re used to hearing. But his hope is that somewhere in its humanity, you find something divine. After all; sometimes you gotta lie in the dirt just to stare at the stars.
