This week’s session comes from Ben Somers, playing a song from his new album Poor Stuart which is out on the 7th September. Ben is involved in multiple musical projects, playing various styles and instruments, and the album incorporates elements of folk, bluegrass, traditional music and jazz with both vocal led songs and instrumentals.
In Ben’s own words:
Although sometimes complicated or sophisticated this album is strongly rooted in traditional and honest music like folk and country which I grew up on. Overall I hope that all can hear the honesty that I’ve put into making this record. It is a direct representation of many of my passions and it’s real people playing real music.
