Benjamin Clementine, from Edmonton via Paris is a powerfully charming singer songwriter. The passionate Londoner is a self-taught musician who plays the piano in a way that merges the finest classical elements with folk and blues. That said Clementines’s music is raw and full of expression that negates genre boundaries.
Benjamin’s stunning tenor voice bounds with verve, honesty and tenderness accompanied by majestic and emotive piano playing. His sound is arresting and his performances are artfully staged, often barefoot, bare chested and cloaked in a stylish overcoat. With fans including Jools Holland, Burberry and The Guardian/Observer, Benjamin Clementine’s star quality is thankfully not going unnoticed. As a charismatic master craftsman, Benjamin Clementine is one of the best and most unique acts that the UK has to offer.
