Ben Poole Touring with Anytime You Need Me

Ben Poole Touring with Anytime You Need Me

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.

Ben Poole told Bluesdoodles when we talked that … “We will be touring the album with extensive UK Tour from the middle of November. It will be good to be out on the road in the UK, the set will be super strong, not done any UK shows since last October and looking forward to unleashing a whole new set”.
