BEN POOLE – BIOGRAPHY
Not only was Anytime You Need Me the title of Ben Poole’s last studio album, but also the consensus of the press, punters and star players who have caught this British gunslinger on his rise from hot tip to headline act. Released in 2018, the album showed Ben going from strength to strength as a formidable Blues, rock and soul guitarist, singer and songwriter.
Ben has moved fast since he burst out of the Brighton Institute of Modern Music onto the post- millennial scene. We’ve had the breakthrough debut album (2012’s Let’s Go Upstairs). We’ve had the rocket-fuelled live release (2014’s Live at The Royal Albert Hall). 2016’s studio album Time Has Come fused both sides of Ben’s musical personality, capturing the gritty velocity of his shows in a studio context. “We really wanted to get a balance between a live sounding album and a well- produced, polished-sounding one,” he explains.
“There’s a rawness and edginess, but also a subtlety and intimacy. I think we captured what I’m all about with that album, but with the new album the small but amazing team around me pushed me even further as an artist, and as a result we’ve created something way beyond what I could have ever imagined I was capable of.
When you hear comments such as the above from some of the greatest guitar players ever, some of the most respected blues/rock/soul artists in the world today, and some of the leading magazines and radio presenters in Europe, you just know that they have heard something very special. Ben Poole is currently being described as one the most exciting young rock, blues and soul artists to come out of the UK for a long time.
