With ears ruined by modern soul and progressive metal alike, keyboard-playing singer/songwriter Ben Wickins' unorthadox way of writing is inspired by a love of musical oddballs (David Bowie, Prince) and old favourites (Donny Hathaway, Aretha Franklin). He loves nothing more than playing with long time best friends and like-minded funksters, Joe, Dan and Leo.
Have a listen to the single from his first EP:
Ben is a storyteller. From a gangster who is forced to slowly dismantle his criminal empire, bullet by bullet; to a flawed but wonderful woman who is forever coming home drunk and in tears, his debut EP is a collection of weird and wonderful scenes.
