ottewell writes songs that always have a story & a destination – they never end where they began – they’re explosively dynamic.

his 3rd solo offering seamlessly travels between Americana, blues & folk backed by Ben’s unmistakable gutsy & gravelly voice. Co-written with childhood friend & former Tunng member, Sam Genders, this record delves into such relevant subjects as love & relationships, fame & politics. The album’s title track focuses on populist politicians exploiting people’s hopes & fears, with Bones touching on the realisation of not being worthy of someone, & opener Own It, sees Ben reflect on his time growing up in public in Gomez. New single Watcher is the perfect introduction to the album & despite its pensive meaning, is a melodic Americana led track that builds into a memorable bluesy & soulful chorus.
