Zermatt Unplugged, Zermatt
Since British musician Ben Howard released his triple platinum debut album, Every Kingdom back in 2011, much has changed.. Musically, Ben now operates largely in a world and sound of his own making, as adept with an acoustic as he is with the electronics that have peppered and punctuated his recordings across four distinctive chapters.
A decade since that debut album was released, 2021’s fourth album, ‘Collections From The Whiteout’, debuted at #1 in the UK album chart (Ben’s second chart-topping record after 2014’s I Forget Where We Were), and as he puts the finishing touches to album five, it’s exciting to hear the next chapter and some new material soon.
A gripping live performer, Ben and his expansive band have been described as ‘spellbinding, transcendental even’ by The Times. It’s a mesmerising, intense and powerful live show.
As one of the UK’s most enthralling songwriters and guitarists, Ben’s fierce desire to operate in and out of the shadows make both his music and live shows a rare but vital proposition.
