‘Ben See is one of those composer-performers who sees no musical barriers. His music is sensitive and highly crafted, but also very accessible and dare I say it, downright catchy at times! Making use of a range of music technology and a keen musical intellect, he presents a very contemporary mix.’ Colin Riley – Music Orbit
‘Ben See is a bedroom musician from South London who delivers a cappella that is at once original, intuitive and just damned catchy. This boy will do well and you can take that to the bank.’ Chris Bye – Arts Council England
‘Ben See towers head and shoulders above everything else for sheer freshness and downright originality. He is definitely a man to watch. Not for the possibility of future fame – though that may come. But in my opinion his debut release could well be one of the most daring and musically adventurous records you’ll hear all year.’ Tom Robinson – BBC6 Music
Ben’s musical influences range from the detailed scores of Benjamin Britten to the eccentric Björk, with a detour via the heart-on-sleeve songwriting of Brian Wilson and the vocal wizard Bobby McFerrin. Ben is drawn to lyrics, songs which have something to say, and music with message. He is also interested in vocal music which does something a little bit different, and explores the full expressive potential of the human voice.
