Ben Hazlewood is completely engrossed in the performing arts scene. He has been writing music since the age of 13 and has written over a 100 songs, both individually and for professionals in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. At 17, he performed in NZ Idol and finished in fourth place. Ben has grown up in a performing arts family and they have always believed in his talent. He moved to London and formed boy band The Scheme, but they fell apart after 2 years. This was a heartbreaking experience for him, as he never wanted the dream to end. He has come to The Voice to reignite that dream.
