ROB SEZ: Ben Watt was half the duo Everything But the Girl (a stellar British act blending folk, jazz, pop and, later, electronica). Although Ben was the guitar guy and Tracey Thorn the voice of EBTG, it turns out Ben has a great singing voice and can write a heckuva good tune. His solo work is a welcome discovery.


Ben Watt Trio:
Ben Watt – guitar, vocals
Bernard Butler – guitar
Martin Ditcham - drums

Ben's new solo album is Hendra — absolutely worth a long listen
