Benjamin Francis Leftwich | Hull

Artistic transformation is often associated with a blast of fanfare – the dramatic unveiling of a new look, or lofty announcement of the revelation that prompted such a change. 

In the case of Benjamin Francis Leftwich, reinvention transpires with significantly more subtlety on his latest album, Some Things Break.“It feels like a new voice, in a way." the York-born artist says. "I guess a more human and perhaps a more surrendered voice. 

Learning to hold on to certain things and let go of others with as much grace as possible...I feel like I’m hiding less on this record. Ultimately i think it’s a record about a kind of slow acceptance that some things break and for me - sometimes that’s necessary for healing”Fans of Leftwich’s earlier work will associate him with a rich but pared-back acoustic singer-songwriter sound. 

Hit songs such as “Atlas Hands” and “Shine” – both from his Top 40 debut Last Smoke Before the Snowstorm – were infused with a charming wistfulness, and the yearning for sweet escape. Fans and critics alike were struck by this new artist’s disarming honesty; his lyrics were lauded for their candidness and vulnerability
