Benjamin Folke Thomas was born in the coldest winter recorded in modern day history in Sweden. Perhaps his obsession for sad, lamenting country songs was inevitable. He grew up on a small island off the west coast of Sweden. It was a secluded place, populated by mainly evangelical Christians.

However, Ben never found God. He discovered grunge music instead, and at the age of 11 he was playing drums in a punk bank. He turned to Folk and Americana music through Kurt Cobain’s cover of the Leadbelly classic ‘In the Pines’. Lyrically, he channels Warren Zevon, Townes Van Zandt and Jackson Browne.

He’s been described by Q Magazine as ”One of the best guitar players you’re ever likely to hear”. He’s played over a thousand gigs around bars and clubs around London, honing his skills as a guitar playing and performer and has become one of the most exciting and explosive live acts on the quickly growing Americana scene.

His new album ‘Copenhagen’ is out in March 2017.
