BEN MARWOOD – SINGLE REVIEW

Ben Marwood – Baby You’re a Mess (Xtra Mile Recordings)
Ben Marwood - Baby You're A Mess

Release Date: Out Now

I’m always intrigued to get new releases from Xtra Mile Recordings as they have a strong track record of unearthing excellent songwriters and tunesmiths. Although Reading’s Ben Marwood may not be brand new on the scene but he’s new to me and he’s pretty special to boot. New single, ‘Baby You’re A Mess’ has a touch of the Frank Turner’s about it but with less of that anger and a little more confessional introspection as the song grows from delicate acoustic tones to a strummed full band romp in direct correlation to Marwood’s confidence in the message he’s delivering. If you like you’re folk impassioned and with a touch of Americana about it then this might just be up your street, idly strumming a guitar in the corner of an Irish bar with a half drunk pint of Guinness on a stool.
