Ben Montague

Ben Montague was born in Farnborough, Kent in 1983. Son to a musical family, he threw himself into sporting life, growing up with a football at his feet, a tennis racket in one hand, and guitar in the other. Blessed with an acute sense of melody and a killer vocal, Ben had fierce ambitions to one day perform with stars as big as those in his old man’s record collection (The Beatles, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Elton John.)

The dream began turning into reality when he was spotted performing in Soho and got the money needed to make his first EP featuring the track ‘Haunted’ co-written with friend Jamie Hartman of Ben’s Brother. This song landed the coveted Record of the Week spot on BBC Radio 2. Things then really started to fall into place when follow up single ‘Broken’ hit Radio 2’s A list for 6 weeks.

In recent times Ben has been working hard playing live and gathering new fans. He ended 2010 with a November headline tour and jetted out to Milan for F1 Rocks to support The Stereophonics.

2011 has got off to an equally exciting start. Ben came straight off the back of a full UK February headline tour into a 25k capacity UK main support slot with The Lighthouse Family. He has a new acoustic album due in April, ten summer festivals in the diary, and recording sessions for his next full studio album planned with legendary producer Dave Eringa at Rockfield Studio in Wales.
