Ben Kenney of Incubus

Ben Kenney, (born on March 12, 1977), is an American musician, and the bassist for the band Incubus. Ben Kenney played guitar for the hip-hop group The Roots before he joined Incubus in 2003 after the departure of bassist and founding member Alex Katunich aka Dirk Lance. He had previously played with Incubus members Mike Einziger and Jose Pasillas in Time Lapse Consortium. The introduction of Kenney into the group marked a shift in the band's sound. His groove-oriented sound replaced previous bassist Dirk Lance's funky bass lines.

Ben is known to play 6 different instruments and sometimes plays drum solos with Incubus' drummer Jose Pasillas live on-stage. He has also done studio work for artists including Ben has two solo albums, 26 released in 2004, and Maduro released on March 1, 2006. Both were released by the independent record company, Ghetto Crush Industries. Ben plays guitar, bass, and drums while singing and writing every part on the solo records. His on-stage equipment includes Lakland Joe Osborn and Bob Glaub signature basses (based on Fender Jazz and Precision basses respectively), Line 6 effects and Mesa Boogie amplifiers.
