Born in South London, England, Ben Kidson is a songwriter and singer, who first started playing guitar at age 7. Having attended one of the UK’s most prestigious schools for 7 years, he burned out with relatively disappointing A-levels, having rejected traditional education in favor of a music career. 

His songs are an amalgamation of influences, from the Spanish guitarists whose songs he grew up playing, to Billie Eilish, to his teenage heroes Nirvana. They combine searingly personal songs covering love and loss (Delicate, Heaven) to more politically charged numbers like the reggaeton-influenced “Get Mad”.
