I’m not ashamed to admit I listened with vapid curiosity to Ben Hammersley’s music because Emma Watson sings back up on some of the tracks. Yes like every other quasi Potterhead I loved her as Hermione Granger but I didn’t know she sung as well. Seriously, this woman has so many layers and loving it!
Once my curiosity was fulfilled I realized I thoroughly enjoyed Hammersley’s EP ‘Solace’ and have had his music on repeat all day. His voice reminds me of a softer version of Passenger with a hint of Jack Johnson. Lyrically, the song ‘Pantomime’ is probably my favorite off the EP, a glimpse into one of those relationships where you’re at the point you irritate each other and words simply aren’t helping anymore…..its just so beautiful.
And Hammersley is selling his EP for FREE!! I think everyone should download and just embrace it the beauty that is Solace.
