Ben Kempner – The Lightbulb Moment

Birmingham Conservatoire student, drummer and composer – Ben Kempner presents 2 original suits of music of greatly contrasting styles. In the support set, Ben will be joined by saxophonist and recorder player Nathaniel Evans in their new drum and bass duo – Bottle and Coin.

Inspired by artists such as Mark Guiliana and Kenny G, this is an aggressively high energy duo that will reduce even the most resilient of men to a fit of hysteria and panic. In set 2 Ben is joined by singer Giulia Marro and his band, presenting music from his new album, the Lightbulb Moment. This is an Indie project centred around angular guitar riffs and haunting vocal melodies, inspired by artists such as Nick Drake and Radiohead.
