Benjamin Francis Leftwich

MUSIC | I ♥ Band: Benjamin Francis Leftwich

This young lad from "oop north" (York to be precise), has gone from zero to hero in no time at all. His raw soulful voice delicately plays over his soft chords to make beautiful acoustic indie music. 'Atlas Hands' was the song that gained Benjamin Francis Leftwich the accolades that he clearly deserved and ensured that the indie music press sat up and paid attention. Compared to his peer James Vincent McMorrow and sounding like a cross between José González and Ray LaMontagne, Benjamin Francis Leftwich is perfect listening on a lazy Sunday morning.

Also worth checking out is his cover of Arcade Fire's 'Rebellion'. It's fantastic and has received a lot of playtime on my iPod. Benjamin Francis Leftwich signed to Dirty Hit and released his debut album 'Last Smoke Before the Snow Storm' in 2011. He's currently touring the UK so keep an eye in your local music press for details of when and where you can catch him.
