Named by The New York Times Magazine as one of the ’28 Creative Geniuses Who Defined Culture’ in 2016, Benjamin Clementine is truly something special. The 28-year-old musician and poet carries with him an incredible story; leaving North London after the death of his grandmother and heading to Paris in which he roamed the streets as a homeless busker, to then landing himself a record deal and performing at some of the most prestigious festivals and venues. After such a huge accomplishment, he released his debut album ‘At Least For Now’ – whose sophisticated yet bold sound not only saw accolades of outstanding reviews and praise, but also won him the 2015 Mercury Prize.
Two years on and Clementine is still producing hauntingly beautiful and poetic tracks, with the release of his latest singles ‘Jupiter’, ‘God Save The Jungle’ and ‘Phantom of Aleppoville’ delivering his well-know and renowned sound of politically charged piano chords with a message to share. These tracks come with the anticipation of Clementine’s upcoming second album ‘I Tell A Fly’, which is due to be released late September this year.
However, in the meantime, celebrate the release of this new album with us by securing a spot on his newly announced tour – as Benjamin is set to perform Leeds, Manchester, London and Gateshead this December. With such an already established reputation and signature sound, Benjamin Clementine is an artist not to be missed this year.
