Ben Ransom Releases Young Years Featuring Sharon O'Neill
Ben Ransom latest release
"Young Years" – is a duet with the New Zealand Hall of Famer and co-writer of the Dragon classic –Sharon O'Neill.
Sharon is no stranger to the airwaves and charts both in Australia and her native, New Zealand, thanks to hits including "Maxine" and "Physical Favours".
The song holds a special place in Ben’s heart – his Mum, who passed away from brain cancer – was cared for in the same palliative care unit by the same nurse who looked after Dragon’s Marc Hunter in his final days. Ben recorded the song on his current album which then found it’s way to Sharon – who loved it so much – she suggested recording it as a duet.
