Between Ship and Shore Part Three
This is the third release in a series of 3 EPs with Part One reaching critical acclaim with stunning feedback from Test Pressing and a whole heap of righteous DJs and music lovers. With remixes from A Man Called Adam, this release once again exposes Ben’s Folk credentials.
Renown as a multi instrumentalist B.J. Smith is perhaps best known for his wonderful ‘Dedications to the Greats’ release which have seen him cover Mos Def, The Pharcyde and OutKast in his own unique style, Ben is also half of Balearic super duo, Smith & Mudd and one third of White Elephant with Jim and Chris from Crazy P.
Between Ship and Shore is a selection of songs that Ben has been crafting between his London home and summers spent in Cornwall and the results speak for themselves. One man and his guitar and his tales of time spent by the wonderful coastline of the South West of the UK and a hint of the Scottish Highlands.
JJ Cale, Terry Callier and John Martyn all influence and inspire Ben, and this is apparent in his subtle yet powerful tales.
