As a singer and lead guitarist in rock band Gomez, Ben Ottewell is well known for his unmistakable voice and talent for blistering and inspired guitar solos. Rolling Stone declared, "Gomez's not-so-secret weapon is Ben Ottewell". And as GQ Magazine once wrote and anyone listening can attest, "[his] voice is not of this world."
Ottewell released his first solo album Shapes & Shadows (ATO) in 2011, Since then, Ottewell has been pleasing audiences with a series of successful solo tours across the UK, US and Australia.

John Smith's mesmerising percussive guitar and storytelling has been winning fans everywhere. Whether it be playing the guitar lap-style like a drum, detuning the strings mid-chorus or just straight-forward rumbling fingerstyle, the Devon man's playing has prompted both hushed appreciation and riotous standing ovations.
'John Smith again demonstrates why he is the guitarists’ guitarist. His steel-strung acoustic playing adding a beguiling complexity to songs that possess a sharp communicative clarity and directness' (The Sunday Times)
'A man with one of those rattling hearts. It's a true heart. It's a hurt heart' (Daytrotter)
'Songs that impress with the beauty of John's guitar work and intertwined vocals. Staggeringly good' (Acoustic)
'Beyond beautiful' (Jo Whiley, Radio 2).
