A singer-songwriter who moulds the classic songwriting sound of Paul Simon with the laid back nature of Jack Johnson, Ben Williams is a difficult artist to pigeon-hole and all the better for it. His debut album ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ has received airplay on BBC Radio 2, including the Dermot O Leary Show, and was described by Janice Long as ‘so beautiful’. R2 magazine thought the album was ‘guaranteed to bring a smile to your face’. Ben’s Christmas song ‘Too Cold For Snow’ was played on BBC Radio 2 on Christmas Day.

Having started as a busker, Ben Williams’ rise to prominence in the music industry has been truly impressive. Grammy award winning producer Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Paulo Nutini), who knows a great musician when he sees one, describes him as “an excellent guitarist and great to have around on a recording session”, while drummer and producer Steve White (Paul Weller, Style Council, Oasis) called him “great guitarist and top musician”. These are professionals who gained a position in the industry by being able to identify talent, and they see it in Ben Williams.

And finally, if you were in any doubt as to how passionate Williams is about his songwriting, he also runs his own blog about songwriting – http://www.songwriterstalkaboutsongwriting.com/. Having interviewed people like Dan Wilson, Jamie Lawson, Ron Sexsmith, Chris Difford, Frank Turner and more, this is one songwriter who is keen to keep honing and learning his craft.
