RossCelebrated blues rock guitarist and singer-songwriter, Ben Poole, will release his new album, Time Has Come via Manhaton Recordson Friday 1st April.  Produced by King King’s drummer, Wayne Proctor, the album dovetails Poole’s co-headline tour with Stevie Nimmo which starts February 4th.

Already, Ben has been dubbed “amazing” by Jeff Beck, “really great” by Gary Moore, “ferocious” by Guitarist Magazine and “one to watch” by The Blues Magazine.  Ben himself comments:

This album has a really nice overview of my style, covering everything from rock and blues to soul and pop, and even elements of funk and gospel. Artists we referenced frequently in the process were Robert Cray, Jonny Lang and John Mayer. I hope it’ll please the blues-rock guitar fans, but also have the depth and maturity to appeal to an audience beyond that.

Ben has moved fast since he burst out of the Brighton Institute of Modern Music onto the post-millennial scene. The new album captures the gritty velocity of his shows in a studio context. He continues:

There’s a rawness and edginess, but also a subtlety and intimacy. Wayne and I developed an amazing working relationship. Neither of us were afraid to throw countless ideas out there, and nothing was dismissed, no matter how crazy it might have sounded.
