Ben Tufts (he/him) was born in Crete, Illinois in 2002 and was raised in Crown Point, Indiana for most of his life. Music has always been important to him since he was young: he began learning guitar when he was seven and formed his band, ASP, in high school around 2018. Not long after starting a band, Tufts got a studio internship where he does audio engineering work and gets a chance to record material with his band. Tufts graduated from Crown Point Highschool in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic began before he started college, so he chose to attend Columbia College Chicago completely online, where he is majoring in audio arts with an interest in music production. Tufts currently lives with his parents in Crown Point.
