Recognise the face of Ben Kelly? There’s a good chance you might! Ben is one of Ireland’s best talents and he first came to our attention via his awesome Youtube videos years ago and then last year he was on The Voice where he became our favourite member of team Jessie J!
Since The Voice, Ben has been busy at work on his debut album as well as performing for the Queen and all over the UK! This week Ben has released his debut EP, ‘City Boy’ and to celebrate, there was an exclusive gig in a trendy North London venue. MP reporter Jon Hornbuckle went along to see Ben take to the stage.
The ‘City Boy’ EP (which you can preview here) is a collection of fun, catchy upbeat pop with big ballads and buckets of personality and you can’t go wrong with that formula! Alongside the title track, our favourites include ‘Criminally Gorgeous’ which is a slice of pop magic that would put even the poppiest popstars in popworld to shame!
Another highlight is the big ballad of the EP, ‘Lionheart’ – this is one you will be listening to on repeat over and over again and is a chance for Ben to unleash his inner Kelly Clarkson if you will. This song is BIG.
If the EP is as good as this then we cannot wait to see what Ben’s debut album will be like!
