An accomplished entrepreneur based in Seattle, Washington, Benjamin “Ben” Shoval has served as president of Shoval & Co. since 2004. In his free time, Ben Shoval enjoys yoga, reading, and listening to the music of a diverse group of artists, including Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, and Maddie & Tae.
Formed in Nashville, Tennessee, in 2014, Maddie & Tae is a popular country duo composed of singers/songwriters Maddie Marlow and Tae Dye. The duo was the first group signed to Dot Records after Big Machine Label Group revived the Tennessee-based label, and they quickly made a name for themselves with their hit debut single, Girl In a Country Song, which earned a Platinum certification and was nominated for three 2015 Country Music Awards.
Maddie & Tae continued to counter the so-called “bro country” trend with their second single, Fly, and their honky-tonk number, Shut Up and Fish. Currently, the duo is on a tour that includes two London shows taking place in mid-March 2016.
