Ben Newbury is a singer/songwriter who lives for music, 'a world without music would be a pretty awful world to live in'. With vast musical influences including the likes of solo artists such as Bon Iver, Bob Dylan, Pete Doherty running through to some of the most well known bands in musical history including The Beatles, The Smiths, The Libertines, The Enemy, The Rifles, just to name a few.
