Benjamin Francis Leftwich
York singer-songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich has made major waves on the music scene in recent times, releasing his debut album, Last Smoke Before the Snowstorm to huge acclaim last Summer.
The first thing you notice is the voice. Haunting and sublimely other-worldly, it stops you in your tracks with the gentlest of touches, proving that sometimes the intoxicating simplicity of a single voice is all you need to make an impact. His hypnotic, breathy voice is the reason for it all. It exposes his soul before anyone even hears the lyrics, letting the listener into Benjamin’s most intimate world in a way no interview or video ever could.
