International Blues/Rock/Soul guitarist, singer and songwriter Ben Poole Kicks off his November/December 2018 UK Tour at the Brighton Latest Music Bar on Wednesday 21st November. Ben Poole’s Anytime You Need Me UK Tour will feature, King King’s Wayne Proctor on drums. The tour follows the release of Ben’s new studio album Anytime You Need Me, released on Friday 14th September via Manhaton Records. The new album follows Ben’s critically acclaimed albums Time Has Come (2016) and Live At The Royal Albert Hall (Recorded by the BBC in 2014). Tickets are available via .
Anytime You Need Me was recorded at Superfly Studios in Ollerton, Nottinghamshire produced by Wayne Proctor, who will be Ben’s drummer during the UK Tour. “It was an absolute joy to work again with Wayne,” says Ben. “He has a great ear and knows me well as an artist, and the result is amazing.”
The new studio album marks a point in Ben’s career where he feels he’s really found himself as an all-round guitarist, singer and songwriter The best representation on a studio record so far of the attitude, energy and excitement that he brings to his live shows. The album is a melting pot of rock, blues and soul but with a pop sensibility in the songwriting allowing it to feel accessible throughout. The overall sound showcases a lot of grit and a swagger, with special emphasis on guitar tones and instrumental performances from everyone who played on the album.
On Anytime You Need Me, Ben was ready to do something harder hitting and more guitar based than his previous album, Time Has Come. The main focus was still on writing great songs but with far more focus on Ben as an artist. He kept the team small and avoided having too much outside influence on the direction of the music. Ben co-wrote the album with his two writing partners, Wayne Proctor and Steve Wright.
