Ben Hemming “Dead Man Blues” – Listen

Dead Man Blues‘ leads off Ben Hemming’s new album ‘The Devil Beside Me‘ which is released on May 31st. The song has a pulsing beat which adds an additional edge to Hemming’s unsettling growl of a vocal. Of the song Ben Hemming has said :”‘Dead Man Blues’ is really a metaphor for feeling ignored in a world that no longer shares your beliefs and actually it’s the first track on the new album because that sense of isolation and detachment is a central theme that runs throughout the record.”  Ben has some upcoming London dates, at The Luna on 18th May and on the 21st July at The Gladstone Arms.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
