"The Folk Hero Toledo Needs"

"Ben Stalets is the folk hero Toledo needs..." - Toledo Blade


Still working on that hot first release.



Ben Stalets is not a songwriter; he’s a song. Realizing he couldn’t wash the Toledo off, Ben leaned into it. Inspired by the blue collar underdogs and anti-heroes the rust belt surrounds you with. Talking to Ben is talking to an old friend, and that’s exactly how his songs are written and performed. As comfortable in a bar as he is in a listening room, by the 3rd verse of the first song, Stalets will have the room quiet enough to hear someone clutching their pearls, just before the refrain gives permission to laugh. 

After almost a decade of songwriting and performing, it’s your civic duty to catch Ben whenever he comes within 100 miles of your town.
