Ben TD
Books and Boats
Lo-five Records

Ben TD's debut single has merely two tracks, but they both suggest serious talent. He was born in Australia, but now resides in Glasgow.

"Books and Boats" has a surging, almost epic quality that brings out the best in the young singer's vocals. "Once for the Dust" is more introspective track that works well too. TD sounds not unlike Fionn Regan but has his own timbre. His forthcoming debut album should be a real treat. His songs have what it takes on this evidence.
