Born as a recording project in a barn in Northern Lancashire in 2012, Ben Hall recorded and self-released seven albums under the guise of a naively drawn character ‘Mr Ben’. After releasing a split EP on Bingo Records in 2017 the side project now turned live outfit with their first gig actually happening live on BBC 6 Music.
After releasing two more records with Bingo and numerous UK tours the four-piece are known for their captivating, costume clad, joyous, pop performances. Mr Ben & the Bens sound like they were baptised in water from the church of indie classics, the songs of the Lancaster Polymath echo Belle & Sebastian, Teleman, Gorkys Zygotic Mynci and a bit of Bill Ryder-Jones his genuinely great modern songwriting.
