About Put Me In The Song

Put Me In The Song was started by Ben Blanchet, a 17 year old autistic musician, social media influencer and autism advocate.

Ben loves to write music and is known for re-writing pop songs, writing weather songs for the radio, and creating original songs for all occasions.   Ben is the author of "Maybe Autism Is My Superpower".  When Ben was only 3 years old it was realized that he has perfect pitch. He went on to learning many instruments by ear and which eventually led to writing, creating and producing his own music.  

It is Ben's hope that "Put Me In The Song" gives both children and adults a fun and different music experience .  It is Ben's goal to create customized songs that spread the joy of music, something that has always been a comfort for him on his autism journey.
