With two acclaimed EP’s, big time radio play and some major festivals lined up for the summer, Benjamin Francis Leftwich is quickly becoming Brit-Folk’s next big thing.

The 21 year old song-smith from York is gearing up for the release of his highly anticipated debut album; Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm in July.

Relying on his trusty old acoustic and deft song writing abilities he has built up strong radio support from both Radio 1 and XFM and bagged himself spots at Bestival and Glastonbury.

Having toured with Noah & The Whale and his own headline tour underway this month, Francis brings heavyhearted lyrics with sparse but effective musicianship.

Last Smoke Before The Snowstorm is released on 4th July
