THE BEN WATT TRIO

FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF HIS ACCLAIMED SECOND SOLO ALBUM, OHENDRA¹, BEN WATT GOES BACK ON THE ROAD IN THE UK AND IRELAND IN OCTOBER AS A TRIO

After twenty years as joint singer-songwriter and primary instrumentalist in Everything But The Girl, and ten as an international DJ and label owner with Buzzin¹ Fly, Ben Watt returned to his singer-songwriter folk-rock roots in April this year with an acclaimed new solo album, OHendra - his first since his cult classic ONorth Marine Drive', thirty-one years ago.

Following UK dates in April and summer tours of the US, Japan and Australia, he returns to the road in the UK and Ireland in October with a new variation on his recent live line-ups.

The Ben Watt Trio sees Watt on vocals, guitars and electric piano, joined by two of his key album-collaborators - lead guitarist and recent tour constant, Bernard Butler (Suede, Trans, Bert Jansch), plus drummer and percussionist, Martin Ditcham (Talk Talk, The Waterboys, Sade).

OHendra¹ has attracted widespread four and five-star reviews from the likes of Mojo, Q and The Guardian. The Guardian¹s leading rock critic Alexis Petridis picked it as the Oone album you should hear this week, saying Oas a demonstration of Watt¹s songwriting prowess, OHendra is pretty much perfect.

The Line of Best Fit remarked, OIt¹s poignant, yet unsentimental and completely overwhelming: you¹d need a heart of stone not to resist its impact while Resident Advisor called it Oan always beautiful, sometimes stunning album.

Expect recent songs and vintage gems!
