about

"McGarvey has locked himself away in his bedroom and crafted songs of true otherworldly magic and splendour. Bursting with beautiful acoustic melodies and hooks..."
MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS

“Epic, otherworldly sounds in an intimate show, with digital trickery framing trad folk singer-songwritery fare.”
THE GUARDIAN

"McGarvey is a young singer/songwriter with that rarest of things in the genre; imagination"
CLASH MAGAZINE

"An undiscovered hidden Gem"
THE 405

"This is an astoundingly accomplished album that twists alternative folk with the traditional, yet uses technology to compelling effect"
MANCHESTER MUSIC

Songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Ben McGarvey has been described by Clash Magazine as having “as much in common with Múm as David Gray and his ilk”. Ben’s songs are not restricted to the all too familiar traditions of the singer-songwriter genre; his painstakingly emotive melody lines drift in and out of soft electronic textures and lo-fi drum clatterings, with the distant echoes of found-sounds to reinforce the quirky and often taboo lyrical themes.
