Ben Newbury is a singer/songwriter who lives for music, 'a world without music would be a pretty awful world to live in'. With vast musical influences including the likes of solo artists such as Bon Iver, Bob Dylan, Pete Doherty running through to some of the most well known bands in musical history including The Beatles, The Smiths, The Libertines, The Enemy, The Rifles, just to name a few.
Having such an eclectic taste certainly reflects within his music from the use of the picked 12 string acoustic guitar down to the rhythms and melodies of the electric guitar and piano. Having fallen in love with music and singing from an early age he later picked up his first guitar at the age of 15 and decided he was going to teach himself, and has never looked back since.
Having a BA HONS degree in the arts has helped him grow as a performer and a writer; his lyrics are seemingly poetic and truthful being influenced by love, life and the simplest dreams, day dreams, thoughts or actions. He takes us on a journey within the story of his own life 'beyond the land where wildest dreams are free' as seen in the songs 'A song for you' and you and I'.
