Ben has been playing off and on with Bonnie Tyler Dep’ing for his good friend, drummer Alex Toff for many years now. Bit of trivia for you – Bonnie is an iconic artist who happens to live 15 minutes from Ben’s home in South Wales. Ben has toured countless countries with the Welsh singer from Beirut to Norway.
Ben started off this years work with Bonnie helping to prepare a promo show for the Zoe Ball breakfast show on BBC Radio 2. An acoustic performance re-working some of her classic hits as well as a cover of Rag ‘n’ Bone Man’s “Human”. Ben played percussion using his unique take on producing multi layered real time percussion by strapping instruments to any limb possible! Ben uses Meinl Percussion, Ortega Guitars Stomp pedals and Aston Microphones exclusively.
Ben will record a live DVD at the London Palladium later in 2019 to celebrate the release of her latest studio album entitled “Between The Earth And The Stars”. Keep an eye out for this raucous band tearing up all of Bonnie’s hits as well as songs from her new album plus some classic blues songs either in person at a show or via the live DVD. Release details to be announced.
