Ben Smith was born in Manchester, and from a young age started performing music with grunge/punk outfit Requiem. Ben soon found moderate success on the Liverpool music scene with Post-Hardcore band Inglorious, playing venues such as The Academy and the iconic Cavern Club. In 2012, after the dissolution of Inglorious, Ben began performing as a solo singer/songwriter. Blending a mix of simple acoustic melodies with honest and powerful lyrics, influenced by artists such as Frank Turner and Bob Dylan, Ben became a regular on the Manchester music scene.
2017 saw the release of Ben’s debut E.P, The Man I Used To Be, with a full album currently being written and scheduled for a 2018 release.
