Twenty-five year old Ben Poole is currently being described as the most exciting young blues/roots artist to come out of the UK in a long, long time.
A talented guitarist, singer and songwriter with obvious blues/ rock / soul / R’n’B/ influences it’s hard to not to admire this young man’s music.
He was nominated for three awards at the British Blues Awards in 2011, including Best Young Artist and Best Original Song, as well as being voted ‘Best Newcomer’ by Blues Matters magazine in their 2012 readers poll.
The last few years have seen Ben touring regularly across Europe appearing at some of the biggest festivals across the continent.
If you like Joe Bonamassa and John Mayall, you’ll love this guy. Here he is belting out a tune in Germany:
