Orignal Music and Cover Songs
Music has been a passion of Ben’s for many years. However, he hasn’t often shared his own music. In 2020 that all changed as Ben made a conscious decision to start recording some of his favourite cover songs and to finally start work on an album of his own music, the songs he’s been writing for over ten years.
Cold Hard Shoulder
Ben’s debut album, Cold Hard Shoulder, features songs he has written over the course of the last decade, going right back to his early University days. The topics covered on this album are as varied as the centenary of the First World War, growing up and moving away from home, local politics, and love.
