Ben Scriven, a singer-songwriter sounding like the bastard lovechild of Ben Folds and Elton John (try not to think about it too hard). His superb vocal range and well-drilled band played a host of feel-good honky-tonk tracks in the vein of Jools Holland. His piano-led songs were typically excellent...
...His party piece finish involved singing a song whilst playing percussion (using two DVDs), a rhythm
guitar, a piano and singing backing
vocals all via an eight-track recorder, a trick I’ve only ever previously
seen done by Paul McCartney. Impressive, mostly in a “How the Hell
did you find you could do that?”
kind of a way.
