Ben Howard is a young folk troubadour who will make you feel as though he is the first young folk troubadour you have ever heard. He gives new lustre to the genre, making it all seem brand new even as his songs have about them a quality and authenticity as old as the hills.

Often compared to Jeff Buckley, Ray Lamontagne, Damien Rice or Matt Corby, Ben Howard readily admits he is “still fairy addicted” to all the classic 60s and 70s singer-songwriters, from Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan to Van Morrison and Richie Havens. These influences transpire throughout his debut album, Every Kingdom, which was recorded in a converted barn in Devon and released at the end of 2011.
