“sheer understated brilliance... this is class...” - BBC Introducing
Ben Morgan-Brown writes intimate & reflective songs heavily informed by the folk-baroque guitarists & singer/songwriters of the late ‘60s & early ‘70s. Inspired to pick up the acoustic guitar when he first heard Bert Jansch’s debut album, his open-tuned guitar, ethereal vocals & obliquely personal lyrics tip the hat to Nick Drake, John Martyn, Michael Chapman etal whilst still maintaining a unique musical style & identity.
Having self-recorded his previous two releases (both of which received airplay onBBC Introducing) his new E.P. ‘Cold Rooms’ was recorded by Josh Clark (Kate Rusby, Mike Dawes, Miranda Sykes) and features five songs (with a bonus sixth track only available through Bandcamp) written in the last 18 months, a time during which Ben has reflected upon the past few years of his life. Life-changing events beyond his control, the release of ‘Cold Rooms’ marks yet another significant moment in his life - the moment at which he begins to give his music & talent the attention it deserves.
