“I counted four or five different genres, reading between the lines of his lyrics you can tell this is a man who has experienced a rich tapestry of life, love and loss” – The Guardian

“His gentle voice, at times reminiscent to these ears of I Am A Bird Now era Antony & The Johnsons, 10-years-in-the making, Prisoner To The Wind promises to be special” – Folk Radio

"The days of the record shop are over, but the days of albums are not. While streaming incubi such as Spotify swarm around single songs, the idea of an artist creating a piece of work that lasts for over an hour instead of less than five minutes is thankfully alive. Recently in the early autumn, I woke at dawn and decided to drive through the Sussex Downs and weave my car between the graves of my parents in Lancing and Sompting as the sun came up. I did this listening to Featherstone's album and I cannot think of better music to have consoled and cheered me during that reflective journey. Recommended listening."

Monty Munford, South By South West journalist panellist and writer for The Economist, BBC and Forbes

“If he never makes another album (and I for one sincerely hope he does), given the time, emotion and effort put into ‘Prisoner To The Wind’, Ben Featherstone can be proud that he has produced an album to be savoured and returned to time and time again. ****

ANNOUNCEMENT

The album has been mostly recorded in a 400 year
old abandoned chapel on a disused cemetary in the
middle of no where on mostly a 1950's reel to reel,
beautiful Neumann microphones and classic
Neve Pre amps - All powered by a caravan battery
and a type writer. These songs have been crafted for
a decade, they have travelled round the world,
through jungles and over thousands of miles
through deserts.
They serve as a diary, a window and a mirror.

 

​The session musicians involved have collectively performed with David Bowie, John Martyn, Nick Drake, The London Symphony Orchestra, Public Image, Rod Stewart, Katy Melua, Adele and many more legends.

 

The album is dark, full of heartbreak, loss and love in all its forms. It might not be in everyones taste but It will be truely unique and have it's own original sound and feeling.
"The writer who refuses to explore the darker reaches of the heart will never be able to write convincingly about the wonder, magic and joy of love," - Nick Cave
