‘After The Rain’ sees all that potential realised and more.

Label: Moshi Moshi
Released: August 19th 2016
Rating: ★★★★

It has been five years since the release of Benjamin Francis Leftwich’s debut. A record that sold over 100,000 copies, it was the platform for an artist of promise to hit the next level, but a five year gap to its follow up put all of that at risk.

Caring for a father between tours, who later passed away, what was lost in momentum is gained in perspective. “I knew that I needed to not do this for a while,” he explains. “I just needed to live outside of music.”

Written during those lowest ebbs, ‘After The Rain’ sees all that potential realised and more, its peaks soaring higher than ever before. Stephen Ackroyd
