Next month Benjamin Francis Leftwich returns to the south coast for two intimate shows in The Wedgewood Rooms in Portsmouth and The Old Market in Brighton.

Ahead of his UK tour, Benjamin has unveiled his cover of Placebo’s ‘Pure Morning’. Imparting his own unique style on the 1998 track, Benjamin’s version is a haunting take, one that shines a new light on the emotive lyrics. It is a definitive sound that resonated across his recent second album After The Rain. 

Following the release of his 2011 debut album Last Smoke Before the Snowstorm, Benjamin’s life was thrown into an unexpected path when he went through one of the hardest things in life, the loss of a parent and his number one source of inspiration, his father. With a record as both effortlessly beautiful and hauntingly honest After The Rain is the sound of him finding peace with himself once more.

Tickets for the shows are on sale now from his website which can be found below or the Wedgewood Rooms Box Office. 

If you are a fan of photography then I would encourage you to check out Ben’s social media as the photos he’s been taking during his Canadian tour are breathtaking!
