BEN SMITH & JIMMY BREWER
Legendary singer-songwriter Joan Armatrading discovered Ben Smith and Jimmy Brewer in 2012, choosing them to support her on tour. She loved them so much she called them again in 2015 to repeat the engagement. The duo combine classic close harmony style with superbly honed songwriting craft to produce a brilliantly accessible roots sound, taking influence from the The Everly Brothers to Simon & Garfunkel, John Martyn to the countrified Grateful Dead. They've just released their eponymous debut EP, great things await.
