Singer-songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich


A firm fan-favourite, ‘Pictures’ sees Benjamin at his most melancholic; a haunting reverb-laden vocal is layered upon Ben’s delicate finger-picking, creating an achingly beautiful song.

The new dates and single follow in the wake of the acclaim that has been building since the release of Benjamin’s debut EP and top 40 album ‘Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm’ which was cited as Album of the Week on Radio 1 and XFM as well as Album of the Day on BBC 6 Music. His debut single ‘Box Of Stones’ was also awarded the coveted Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record In The World, adding to a list of honours including multiple Radio 1 Record Of The Weeks and a Maida Vale session with Fleet Foxes.
