Catchy original songs suitable for all ages. No swearing or offensive lyrics and I'm very friendly with the crowd.

His debut music video 'Close Your Eyes' has been a hit on Youtube and hit the TV when it was accepted for the playlist on Lava TV Sky Digital.

He self produced and independently released his 10 track album Humble Beginnings as well as playing all the instruments on the limited edition pressing of 1000 CDs which has had several critically acclaimed reviews from respected publications.

Ben was invited by Alan Raw to play a live acoustic session on BBC Radio Humberside and recently made the featured undiscovered artist of the week on Yorkshire Coast Radio.

Ben is influenced from a wide range of music such as The Beatles, Frank Turner, Elvis Costello, Green Day, The Ataris. Taking elements from Pop, Rock and Folk. Ben blends together a catchy original sound. Which he has honed through performing in bands since 2003.

2011 sees Ben's music take a slightly different direction, bringing more folk influences into his repertoire, but keeping the underlying catchy pop accessibility. He is currently recording his new E.P 'Painted By Numbers' which will be an acoustic affair featuring 4 tracks of stripped down sound featuring special guest performers to be revealed on release date.
