Biography

Ben Jones is an enigmatic multi instrumentalist based in the UK, schooled in the music of The Beatles, The Beach Boys and classic pop, writing, arranging, producing and performing every note that is commited to tape in his growing library of releases.

Ben released his first album in November of 2008, with his previous backing group, The Lovedays.

The acclaim afforded to his debut effort got Ben prestigious spots at Lounge on The Farm, the Kent music festival held annually,
and The International Pop Overthrow Festival, playing at both The Cavern Club in Liverpool and Kennys Castaways in New York City under the IPO banner.

This was followed up with 4 subsequent albums in as many years, playing a vast array of instruments on a string of dynamic, exciting songs.

Ben is a Kent boy, cutting his teeth on the UK circuit, taking influence from The Beatles,
The Beach Boys, Billy Childish, Roy Wood, Neil Young and Bob Dylan to name but a few.

What sets Ben apart is the sheer ambition of every new gig. Its not enough to move mountains once, you have to do it every time, and this is his aim. Every show must more dynamic than the last, to breathe new life into the songs with every note and to make each crowd feel that the music is a part of them and they are a part of the music.
