"Ben TD and Jo Mango"

"Big mentions also to Ben TD, a young Australian singer song-writer now resident in Glasgow with a refreshing take on subtle, reflective lyrics and sure handed acoustic guitar. A combination of finely crafted songs and engaging personality is likely to win Ben many fans in coming months and we’re certain to hear more of him." - Hi Arts

Bio

On Ben's forthcoming debut solo album:

Tiny Movements by Ben TD is the debut album from a singer who has been traveling with his songs since the age of 14. Ben's adolescence was spent touring the length and breadth of his native Australia with the band Ruby's Grace, alongside his brother Sam. After six years, two albums, two EPs and countless shows, he decided to set out across the globe in search of new territory.

Settling in Glasgow in 2006, Ben soon attracted the attention of Lo-Five. Established by some of the most talented musicians and songwriters in the city's thriving music scene, Lo-Five is a creative collective including the Trashcan Sinatras, Jo Mango, The Brothe Louis Collective and El Dog. Ben enlisted the help of Lo-Five in-house engineer Calum Scott and together they recorded, in bedrooms, closets and abandoned rehearsal rooms, an album both rich in detail and true to the spirit of Ben's captivating live performances.

The result is a homespun record filled with wonder, an eclectic collection of songs encompassing the radio-ready acoustic pop of "Leaves", the melodic introspection of "Once for the Dust" and the soaring, anthemic spirituality of "Books and Boats". At once worldly and intimate, recalling Fionn Regan and Gillian Welch at their best, Tiny Movements is the journal of a journey so far by an artist future travels are sure to be well worth following.
