Ben Roberts started writing music from an early age, taking influence from artists such as Otis Redding, Bill Withers, Hozier and Kings of Leon. Ben has a unique vocal tone that compliments his powerful lyrics and hook-filled melodies.
After supporting Newton Faulkner and Hannah Grace on their respective UK tours, Ben was given the opportunity to perform at Glastonbury and Boardmasters. Other artists that Ben has supported include Gabrielle Aplin, Lewis Watson and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats. Recently, Ben has seen two of his tracks selected as Track of the Day for BBC Introducing in The South.
Ben is currently working on his debut EP.
