Artistic transformation is often associated with a blast of fanfare. However, in his latest album Some Things Break (Dirty Hit Records), singer-songwriter Benjamin Francis Leftwich explores reinvention with calculated subtlety.

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Jimmy Hogarth, Some Things Break features collaborations with fellow songwriters including Mikky Ekko, The 1975’s Jamie Squire, Jon Green and more. Fans of Leftwich’s work will associate him with a rich but pared-back acoustic singer-songwriter sound infused with a charming wistfulness and disarmingly candid lyrics.

Aside from his own material, Benjamin’s songwriting, co-writing and collaboration with other songwriters and artists include The 1975, Nick Mulvey, Jasmine Jethwa, Rachel Chinouriri, CMAT and Holly Humberstone.
