Meet….  Ben Howard

‘Old Pine’ is a four-track EP from young West Country singer-songwriter Ben Howard that’s released on the 23rd May via Communion/ Island Records.

Ben no longer bothers with mobile phones (he’s lost 7 to date), digital TV or social networking. His neo-Ludditism follows through in his music too, all recorded in a crumbling, creaking barn in rural Devonshire.

Selling out venues far beyond his loyal West Country surfing community, his recently concluded UK tour sold-out from Glasgow to London.

Dark and alluring on tape, and creating this unique live story before the story’s truly yet begun, Ben Howard harks back to a classic and comforting time of old, albeit with a forward-thinking method of guitar performance. Spring is afoot, and ‘Old Pine’ is a timely breathe of fresh air. Check out this video of last month’s co-headline, sold-out show at St Stephens Church.
