Infamous for his one-man band style, both in the studio and on the road, Son Of Dave, AKA Benjamin Darvill, has been making music for almost a quarter of a century. He has played hundreds of raucous shows across the globe, sold upwards of forty thousand records and built a fiercely loyal international fan-base.
The former drummer with Crash Test Dummies and all round eccentric performer has a particular flare for the harmonica and makes a formidable racket, dragging the blues kicking and screaming into the 21st century in the shape of ‘sweet devil’s music’. They broke the mould with this one.
Kindest Of Thieves
Writer and sole member of Kindest of Thieves – Christopher J Fox – blends elements of Rag Time, American Gothic, Rockabilly and Gypsy Swing with a booming and shakey signiture croon. Using this as the canvas for his lyrics and poetry, Fox spans the human condition.
