Single release - 'Maybe Never'
My first, self-released single 'Maybe Never' is now available to buy or stream on benwickins.bandcamp.com for £1. Alternatively, you can pre-order the whole EP for £3 and get the single download thrown in. You can also stream it on Soundcloud to your heart's content.
I know it's clichéd but I enjoyed making this one! the arrangements seemed to come together naturally... especially at 4am, surprisingly. It was a golden time for sax line inspiration.
"Maybe there's a change in weather?
Maybe we could be together?
I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be releasing my debut EP ‘Maybe Later, Maybe Never’ on the 22nd of October! I’m also organizing a launch party at The Troubadour in Earls court on the evening of the 22nd. We’ll be laying down some fat grooves on all the EP material as well as a whole host of new songs that somehow managed to escape my writing cellar and arrange themselves on a seven-string guitar…
On top of this, I’ve lined up two brilliant support acts, Leo Aram-Downs and Megan Tuck who will also be bringing down their respective bands.
The event starts at 8pm and is £6 in advance, £8 on the door. You can book tickets here:
Physical copies of the EP will be sold at the launch party and will also be available to download via bandcamp.
I’m going to Brittany this June for a second run of gigs out in the great wide world of French provincial Live Music venues. Also thrilled to announce I’ll be doing them with my 4-piece group, that has come to be known in France as ‘Ben Wickins’ Band’. This time, we’ll be bringing some new songs to the good people of Bretagne, as well as a CD, which will be available to buy exclusively at our gigs before it is officially released.
