BEN HOWARD

After two sold-out Birmingham shows, a top ten album and two completely sold-out UK tours it gives us great pleasure to welcome back….Ben Howard!


Dark and alluring on tape, and creating a unique live story before the story’s truly yet begun, Ben Howard is deserving of the acclaim as a captivating, unique and clever young British songwriter. ‘Every Kingdom’ is the debut album that Ben has been brewing for the last couple of years. Its careful attention to detail, with tight, homespun harmonies and folk-informed arrangements, could only have been fully realised after relentless road-testing of these songs on stages across the UK and Europe.

“A gifted and immediately involving singer-songwriter - from the husky soulfulness of his voice to the sheer good nature of his songwriting” - BBC

“…the finest young singer/songwriter in the UK right now” – Addict Music

WILLY MASON

Willy Mason is an American singer/songwriter signed to Conor Oberst’s label Team Love. He has had two top 40 UK albums, toured with the likes of Death Cab for Cutie, Ben Kweller and Radiohead, played such festivals as the Glastonbury Festival and South by Southwest, and collaborated with The Chemical Brothers on their chart topping album ‘We Are The Night’.

“With the lazy weariness of Tom Waits and the inflection of John Lennon, Mason makes every line he sings something worth listening to, something worth remembering.” – All Music Guide

“Masterful and poignant, it reveals Mason to be a heavyweight talent.” – Q Magazine
