Line Up

An emerging Folk Rock artist from South West England.

Ben Hutcheson bridges the storytelling gap between Passenger, Ed Sheeran and Tim McGraw making him an act to look for in the near future.

Starting out from humble beginnings in Bristol, Ben has become a growingly aware and prominent artist to look out for.
His music career started as a young teenager and since then has gone on to play all around the South West of England. He currently resides in Bath where he is currently studying Commercial Music at Bath Spa University. He is currently preparing his 2nd EP and preparing a tour for the summer of 2018. ​ Ben lists many influences that span through many genres and eras but he notes a few extremely influenctial artists ranging from AC/DC, Kenny Chesney, Brother and Bones, Passenger, Guns N' Roses, Ed Sheeran, The Script and more. ​ “Ben Hutcheson, a young singer/songwriter with a wisdom beyond his years. His lyrics tackle universal themes such as love and loss, yet also weave captivating stories, with a contemporary feel. With a warm, rich voice he expresses emotion and authenticity and makes a genuine connection with his audience.” - Julianne Regan (All About Eve)

"Ben Hutcheson’s dark husky growl sings of a world of intimacy and observation. Love, lust and tenderness, haunted dancehalls and broken promises - Ben’s world is weary though alive due to delicacy and romance. From Portishead to Nashville this is music for lovers, vagrants and thieves." - Davey Ray Moore (CousteauX)

It was whispered in the finest scents of the Deptford muck; one drummer, two sticks, no shits to give and THE PARASOCIALS. An unholy union of neojazz composer Tomer Krail, roguish folk poet George Calne Jones and charming indie softboi Felix Slander, The Parasocials are something like the Beatles in that we have three individual lead singers with their own signature approach, and one drummer that we ruthlessly sideline for kicks.

The Parasocials recorded their first E.P at the aptly titled Brownhouse studios in one whole day, and their second record is taking longer still.

Embodying the assertive DIY attitude of punk rockers, but placed in a pop environment, Ben Kidson moves with the times, but never forgets where he came from. He shoots his own videos. He produces his own music. He makes his own artwork. He is occasionally very funny on social media, and his burgeoning fanbase are dedicated, enthralled by his distinctive DNA, which is etched across every track, shot, and witty instagram post.
