Everyone loves free music and everyone loves Benjamin Francis Leftwich, so here’s the ideal solution. It’s the singer/songwriter’s recently released ‘Covers EP’, where he performs stripped-back versions of some of his favourite tracks. He cites the likes of Arcade Fire and Bruce Springsteen as major influences, and you can hear his passion for them just by listening.
He applies his finger-picking guitar style and delicate voice brilliantly to some well-loved classics, my personal favourite being his version of The Killers’ ‘When You Were Young’.
I’ve got a lot of love for what he’s doing, he’s got an insane amount of talent. Grab your copy of the EP from his website HERE.
