Ben and I met in 2006 while studying jazz at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and we have been playing together ever since in several different projects: Ben’s newest album “What would you like to leave behind”, my independent release “Songs from the Deep“, singing as part of the London Vocal Project, and most recently in a band with our beloved Pete Churchill for our album “Stories to Tell“. We know each other’s music and voices inside out and it is a delight to play music with a dear friend that you totally trust.
As a duo, we play a mixture of songs we have written and songs that we love, with Ben on steel string guitar and vocals, and myself on vocals, nylon string guitar, and percussion. We tour regularly around Germany and the UK and were fortunate enough to do a whirlwind tour around the Philippines in 2014. We look forward to another ten years of music making!

About Ben Barritt:

Ben recently relocated to Berlin to focus on creating original music after years carving out a living in London as a session musician and, having made his first release, feels he’s earned the right to talk about himself in the 3rd person. His CV is more diverse than it is impressive: He’s played every London stage from the Water Rats to the Albert Hall, serenaded princesses on Richard Branson’s private island, played packed arenas dressed as Brian May, sung BVs for Bobby McFerrin in the Barbican and for Damon Albarn on a Greenpeace boat in the middle of the Thames. He’s scraped the rent playing hundreds of loud, dirty club gigs across the UK and also recorded on Kenny Wheeler’s latest album. He’s jammed Meters tunes with Mike Kiwanuka and Joss Stone, played New Orleans banjo in Henley on Thames, performed far and wide from Kitzbühel to Dubai, Antigua to Barrow-in-Furness. Making his escape from London’s unforgiving economy touring Europe as sideman with EMI artist and fellow Berlin resident Jim Kroft, he’s been travelling back to work with a community of like-minded musicians from the Jazz and Soul scenes.
