Benjamin Francis Leftwich.

There’s been an influx of folky singer/songwriters recently, not surprising considering the success Justin Vernon found with the marvellous Bon Iver; and York based Benjamin Francis Leftwich has found many a plaudit with his own brand of melancholia. Leftwich couples softly-softly vocals with some delicate finger-picking to recall the likes of Nick Drake and Elliott Smith, whilst his hopeful lyricism gives him more of a pop sensibility. Check out the particularly lovely ‘Atlas Hands’ below, and keep an eye out for Ben’s latest EP, Pictures, due out March 6th.
