Welcome to Episode 306 of The Artist Connection Podcast! My guest today is actor & musician Ben Rauch! His latest track “The Emoji Song” has recently won Best Comedy Song in the USA Songwriting Competition. It also won four Silver Medal awards for Outstanding Achievement in the Global Music Awards. This praise and recognition is well deserved. It is such a fun song! Be sure to check out the video, as well. Both “The Emoji Song” and Ben’s holiday hit “Jersey Christmas” are featured with this episode. Once you hear them, I know that you will want a copy for yourself. His full length album “Tales from the Turnpike” is due later this year. His acting credits span the stage, television screen, and the big screen. He is such a talented and versatile performer. I had a good time with Ben, and we shared a lot of laughs during our conversation. I hope to have him back very soon. If you reach out to him, please mention that you heard his interview and music on my show. Enjoy!
