Ben Sures is a Canadian roots musician and contributor to
CBC's The Irrelevant Show and is the son of Order of Canada-winning
ceramic artist Jack Sures and painter and illustrator Deborah
A mostly-self-taught musician, Sures discovered the music
of Robert Johnson at age 15 and devoted himself to the study
of blues and roots.
Ben spent close to a decade as an itinerant street musician
and more than 20 years touring the Canadian coffee house and
festival circuit both as a solo headliner and as a sideman for
blues musicians such as Harp Dog Brown, Rita Chiarelli and Paul
Reddick. During that time, he developed a distinctive, quirky
songwriting style marked by plain-spoken lyrics that often express
unique takes on unusual topics.
He won the folk category of the 2005 John Lennon Song Competition
with "Any Precious Girl, a compassionate yet unpatronizing
song about a young woman with bipolar disorder.
