Interview/New Album

Really enjoyed speaking to Laura Cooney at Entertainment Focus about my new album Poor Stuart, work and music. Click HERE to read the full interview.

Ben Somers String Band New Album/September Tour

Very excited about the release of the new album, the whole experience of making it at Tonehouse in Paris with Jean-Etienne Loose was wonderful. The guys in the string band Marius, Evan and Dorian  truly made the music come alive and I’m newly inspired every time I listen to it. Along with the guys there are some guest appearances from the old man Steve Somers and Burning Salt‘s Hannah Hull.  The vocals were produced and recorded by my good friend and bandmate Bobby Williams and then the final magic was woven by Josh Clark at Get Real Audio. I’m looking at releasing in a couple of months and am currently programming our September tour. We’ll be at The Didmarton Festival September 2nd, The Bank in Eye on the 5th and Norwich Sept 6th. Details on my gigs page and more dates to follow.
Heres the title track from the album ‘Poor Stuart’ taken from our tour of Europe last Summer.
