An emerging Country Rock artist from South West England.
Ben is the new generation of the recent pedigree of fresh English singer/songwriters. Critiqued as bridging the storytelling gap between the likes of Passenger, Ed Sheeran and Scotty McCreery.
Realising his passion for writing & performing by releasing his first and second EP unaided, Ben set out to have his voice heard. His songs have clarity beyond his years. His music career started young, learning his craft with any open mic willing to stage him and since then has gone on to play around the UK. Born in Bristol, South West England, Ben followed his own ear for song writing & developed a style that enhances the emerging British Country scene. Taking influence from many artists and trying to break the curve of the standard singer/songwriter
Ben has become a growingly aware and prominent artist to look out for.
His music career started at a young age and since then has gone on to play all around the UK. He currently resides in Bristol where he has just finished his Masters degree in Commercial Music at Bath Spa University and is planning the release of his debut album in the coming year.
Ben lists many influences that span through many genres and eras but he notes a few extremely influenctial artists ranging from AC/DC, Kenny Chesney, Brother and Bones, Passenger, Guns N' Roses, Ed Sheeran, The Script and more.
“Ben Hutcheson, a young singer/songwriter with a wisdom beyond his years.
His lyrics tackle universal themes such as love and loss, yet also weave captivating stories, with a contemporary feel. With a warm, rich voice he expresses emotion and authenticity and makes a genuine connection with his audience.”
- Julianne Regan (All About Eve)
"Ben Hutcheson’s dark husky growl sings of a world of intimacy and observation. Love, lust and tenderness, haunted dancehalls and broken promises - Ben’s world is weary though alive due to delicacy and romance. From Portishead to Nashville this is music for lovers, vagrants and thieves."
- Davey Ray Moore (CousteauX)
