Songwriter Ben Watt is touring North America during the month of June and we are excited to offer ticket giveaways at every show!
Best known for his twenty years as songwriter-performer-producer with Tracey Thorn in alt-pop duo Everything But The Girl, Ben Watt is also an award-winning solo artist, a prize-nominated non-fiction writer, and an international club DJ and radio presenter.
In March 2013 Watt announced he was returning to the solo career he put on hold in 1983. Writing a raft of new songs and teaming up with ex-Suede guitarist Bernard Butler he recorded ‘Hendra’ his first solo album for thirty-one years. The album signalled a move away from electronic music and back to his earliest roots in folk and jazz and art-rock.
In 2015 he returned to the studio to record the follow-up, ‘Fever Dream’, renewing key partnerships with Bernard Butler and engineer Bruno Ellingham, and sprinkling guest vocal cameos from Boston’s dream-folk singer-songwriter Marissa Nadler and Hiss Golden Messenger’s M.C. Taylor. The Guardian and Stereogum trailed the first single/video ‘Gradually’ in February 2016 with the album released globally on Unmade Road through Caroline International on April 8 2016.
