Turn on the Radio and you will never be far away from hearing Ben Montague. He is undoubtedly one of the most talented singer song writers in the UK and since he burst onto the scene in late 2010 with his debut single “Can’t Hold Me Down” he has rarely left the airwaves.
Playlisted for 5 weeks “Can‘t Hold Me Down” was an incredible achievement for a first release; and his follow-up second single “Haunted” went even further, beating off the label backed competition to make the coveted BBC Radio 2 Record of The Week slot; and all of this without commercial backing.
His first full length album “Overcome” received high praise from radio stations up and down the Country and “Broken” his third single from the album, which similarly topped the Radio 2 -A List for 6 weeks, went further than these shores by going on to be the winners single in the Singapore version of the global “Idol” phenomenon.
“Tales Of Flying And Falling” Ben’s second studio album was released in early 2013 and its achievements started where Overcome had left off and made the much sought-after BBC Radio 2 “Album of The Week”, which Ben followed up with as a guest on the hugely popular Tracks of My Years with Ken Bruce.
On the back of this commercial success Ben embarked on a series of Headline and Support tours including Shane Filan, Amy Macdonald, The Lighthouse Family, Stereophonics, The Wanted and Lawson.
