Startle the Heavens is the project of Ben Leopard from Birmingham, Alabama. Started as a side project in 2007, it is music that is inspired by nature and independent film. Ben’s first album was released in 2008 and since then he has completed six albums with more on the way. His music has been featured in a wide range of projects over the years, with his biggest achievement being included in the television show CSI: Miami. It wasn’t until this year (2017) that the music was played live thanks to the help of some close friends who were committed to making it possible.
