COMPETITION: Win tickets to see Benjamin Francis Leftwich!

Win tickets plus a signed album and limited edition screenprint!

One of the UK's most exciting new prospects, Benjamin Francis Leftwich is receiving accolades from all ends of the music industry. He released his stunning debut album 'Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm' on July 4th, which makes it the perfect time for Dropout UK + Miss Win It to offer you the chance to see him live in concert in October, plus take home a signed album and a signed limited edition screenprint!

 

At just 21 years of age, Ben's songwriting has a complex quizzical innocence while the songs themselves, inspired by a childhood listening to Rolling Stones, Nina Simone and Bob Dylan, echo the enchanting wordplay of Feist and the delicate elegance of Elliott Smith.

Benjamin is already working with the big names: His new album is produced by Ian Grimble (Mumford & Sons, Manic Street Preachers), and ‘Pictures', the lead track from his 2nd EP, led to backing from Radio 1 and XFM with the title track awarded Zane Lowe's ‘Hottest Record In The World'.

He has recently completed his first UK headline tour, with 10 sold out dates including shows in Bristol, Brighton and London, and has supported Noah & The Whale on their April UK tour.  At the end of festival season, he will have appeared at Camden Crawl, Dot-To-Dot, Bestival, Boardmasters, Green Man and Glastonbury.

Suffice to say, you will have a difficult time avoiding this young talent in the months to come. Enter here!
