I don’t have the words so I’ve copied the statement below from Simon James Doty
It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to say that one of my very closest friends and manager Ben Sutin has passed away.
He was an incredibly special person and he will be forever missed by his family and friends.
It started out as a typical manager – artist relationship between us but very quickly grew into much much more then that. Ben, Drew and myself became 3 peas in a pod talking every single day about music, sports and life in general.
One thing I will always remember about Ben is that even in the toughest of times he never had a negative thing to say. He always found a way to put a positive spin on everything including the recent challenges we have faced from coronavirus. He was truly one of the nicest and kindest people I have ever met which is why he had such a profound impact on so many people.
Ben has been a massive part of all the releases I have had come out this year and he has been working tirelessly behind the scenes for the last two plus years to help make my music dreams a reality. He believed in me so strongly right from the start and I am forever in his debt.
It’s hard to even think about music at this point but every thing we do going forward will be about carrying the torch for Ben and making the visions he had a reality.
We will miss you every day Ben and you will certainly never be forgotten”.
