I published The Wolves here 13th of September and wrote that Ben Howard sounded much like other contemporary folk-rock singer-songwriters. Truth be told, at that point I had heard 2-3 songs of his and thought they sounded similar to a lot of other stuff.

Now, after the release of his debut album, having heard his old EP and live sessions on Spotify and YouTube and I take that back and say that this guy is incredibly talented and one to stick around.

And his show here at BLÅ in Oslo, 26th November is going to be one the highlights of the year.
