NEW MUSIC: Ben Westbeech – Slowly
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Ben Westbeech – Slowly
Even in the buzzed about UK music scene, Ben Westbeech is still not a household name, and that’s unfortunate. The Bristol native’s voice was first pinned by Gilles Peterson (the original tastemaker) back in 2007, and his release Welcome to the Best Years of Your Life getting critical acclaim.
I first heard about Westbeech thorough his contribution on Jazzanova’s amazing Of All The Things, and been a fan ever since. However, his musical output has been rather lacking until now as he released a new song track “Slowly,” which teases his upcoming album, There’s More to Life than This, set for a Spring release. Based on his previous resume, it’s definitely looking like an album to watch out for.
In exchange for your email address on his website, you get the track, “Slowly.” Enjoy.
