Exeter-based singer/songwriter and guitarist Ben Morgan-Brown writes intimate and reflective songs featuring open-tuned guitar, ethereal vocals and obliquely personal lyrics. There’s a tip of the hat to Nick Drake, Bert Jansch, Michael Chapman et al whilst keeping a unique musical style and identity.
His new EP ‘Cold Rooms’ features five songs written in the last few years, reflecting on recent turbulent years when both grandparents died, he got married and divorced, spend a month in hospital after catching salmonella in Morocco, and lost his father.
Released in December 2017, the EP has received radio play across the UK. 2018 saw Ben promoting the work with live performances across the South West and beyond including performances at Bridport Folk Festival, How The Light Gets In and support slots for John Bramwell (I Am Kloot) and John Smith, as well as Cornwall Folk Festival.
