Ben River 11————————————————————————————————————
Ben River, hailing from West London, fuses contemporary alternative folk and classic songwriting
with a unique sense of lyricism, producing a rhythmic yet melodic, emotional yet edgy sound that
captivates any audience he plays to whether accompanied by his full band or playing solo.
Bugbear Bookings said: “Ben River – Singer songwriter and poet playing melodic folk pop
and sounding like Rufus Wainwright meets Mumford and Sons meets Tallest Man on Earth.”
FolkSpot Radio said: “Folkspot Radio has been playing the music of Ben River since July 2013. He caught our
attention initially with his thought-provoking, poetic lyrics. This, along with his interesting, slightly husky vocal
quality has kept him on our playlist. There is a haunting, dream-like quality to his songs which can sometimes
be reminiscent of Leonard Cohen. Jane Knights/FolkSpot Radio.”
Lymington Folk Club Said: “Ben River, who currently lives in Ladbroke Grove, West London,
is a young singer/songwriter with a style very much his own”… Steve West/Lymington Folk Club
Islington Faces said: “Ben’s songs are hauntingly wonderful.
A master singer-songwriter.”… nicola baird/islingtonfacesblog.com
