Ben Barlow’s Biography (Age)

The Welsh singer was born on July 22, 1994, in Wrexham, Wales. He was raised by his parents along with his two older brothers, one of whom is named Seb. Ben Barlow has not yet disclosed any other pertinent information about his family background, the names of his parents, or the kind of upbringing he had. We are still waiting on him to disclose what schools he attended for his basic and high school education, or what level of academic qualification he has attained.

Ben Barlow’s musical journey began in 2012 when he ran into Lloyd Roberts, a guitarist, while his brother Seb was recording for the band Lloyd played for at the time. They began talking and decided to record something together. The fruit of their collaboration was the song “What Did You Expect?”, which they released online using the name Neck Deep. The song soon garnered a lot of attention with requests for more songs, so Ben and Lloyd added another guitarist, Matt West and Dani Washington, a drummer to the band. Soon after, Fil Thorpe Evans, a bassist joined too and the band was set. They got signed to the American Label, We Are Triumphant in June 2012.

After Neck Deep released their EP, Rain in July, their popularity soared and requests began pouring in for them to play at shows. The band began their first tour in December of that same year and their shows were sold out. Videos from one of their shows were posted online by enthusiastic fans and this led to the label Hopeless Records taking notice of the band. In August 2013, the band signed a deal with Hopeless Records, launching the next phase of their career.

Following the release of their first album, Wishful Thinking, in January 2014, Ben had to drop out of school as he was no longer able to balance the demands of the success that being a member of Neck Deep brought with his educational obligations. During the next few months, Ben Barlow toured with the band, serving as opening acts for a number of established bands and singers. His band released their second album, Life’s Not Out to Get You, in August 2015. A year later, they released their third album, The Peace and the Panic, which was inspired by the death of Ben’s father and the struggle of coming to terms with the reality of his passing. The band has continued to perform their music all across the world.
