Show Announcement: Ben Poole returns!


Ben last performed here in a double header with Stevie Nimmo in 2016 and now he is back with his own headline show! 

Ben has moved fast since he burst out of the Brighton Institute Of Modern Music onto the post-millennial scene. We’ve had the breakthrough debut album (2012’s ‘Let’s Go Upstairs’). We’ve had the rocketfuelled live release (2014’s ‘Live At The Royal Albert Hall’). ‘Time Has Come’ fused both sides of Ben’s musical personality, capturing the gritty velocity of his shows in a studio context. “We really wanted to get a balance between a live sounding album and a well-produced, polished-sounding one,” he explains. “There’s a rawness and edginess, but also a subtlety and intimacy. I think we captured what I’m all about with that album, but with the new album the small but amazing team around me pushed me even further as an artist, and as a result we’ve created something way beyond what I could have ever imagined I was capable of.”
