A name is a good place to start. His name is Ben Semmens, you will come to know him as BenSem. He is from Pontypridd South Wales in the UK, and he is a singer songwriter…

Ben writes music from the soul and is the perfect canvas to show this to the world. He performs a set of clear cut songs, with an alluring unique voice. His music has touched many, which is seen through the venues he plays and the people who travel the world to see the boy from Wales perform. His music expresses hope and realism which is a rarity in today’s struggling music industry.

In early 2009 Ben released his debut album “Western Lights” which was warmly welcomed into the music world and reached a staggering 50,000 downloads worldwide without the assistance of a label, but with the word of mouth of the people who loved his music, his fans.

The music was licensed by Bunim Murray Productions and aired on MTV on several occasions, showing the strength in the boy who will give you shivers.

His music is difficult to categorise but you will find it next to Jeff Buckley, The Goo Goo Dolls and sitting comfortably by Eddie Veddar of Pearl Jam.

When the music starts the boy from Wales takes control of the crowd and brings them on a journey of hope and truth. When you throw in the welsh humor you have everything that Ben Semmens is all about, absoluteness.

2010 will see Ben Semmens playing venues around the country, releasing music and reminding the world of the soul that can be found in the music that once was. Here is what the press have to say …
