I saw Ben live last night (first time) at Shepherds Bush Empire. Absolutely amazing on every level. His lyrics are poignant and carefully crafted, his musicianship is first class and his voice has incredible range and emotion. On top of that, he is also incredibly nice to look at! He is truly blessed.
Charlie was also equally inspirational; a real warmth radiated from him and he really looked like he was enjoying the show.
I only wish it could have been longer, as I would like to have heard more songs and different genres to experience the full range of Ben's voice.... Still, it's good to be left wanting more and I will definitely see him again the next time he plays in the UK.
