Benjamin Francis Leftwich – A Face In The Crowd (Tom Petty Cover)

It’s no secret that we’re massive fans of the long-windedly named Benjamin Francis Leftwich here at Soundhall. So when he dropped this little ditty on his official YouTube last night, we couldn’t help but share it with you all.

It sees the Yorkshire singer/songwriter take on Tom Petty’s “A Face In The Crowd”, applying his soothing and dulcet tones to this classic. He released a free EP of covers last year (which you can download HERE), but whether he has plans to put out another is a burning question. I sincerely hope he does.

He’s going out on a UK tour, starting on Monday at The Globe in Cardiff, taking in a headline gig at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on the Wednesday – and it will be his first ever live band shows. I’ve had the luck to see this guy perform as just a solo act, so it should be interesting to see what the full band will bring to the shows. Tickets available HERE.

Check out “A Face In The Crowd” below, got too much love for this guy’s music.
