Walked Away
is the debut single from aspiring singer-songwriter and guitarist Ben Brown
Through its cleverly crafted and emotive lyrics, Walked Away tells the story of a one night stand at university and the days that follow when things turn sour
Ben’s style of music and pacey lyrics have been compared to Ed Sheeran and Newton Faulkner, both of whom have had a major influence on his chord progression and vocal riffs
Ben has a genuine knack for storytelling and through his vivid, descriptive verses he maintains honesty and vulnerability which everyone can relate to

Ben Brown is a 19-year-old singer songwriter from North West London, currently studying at the University of Leeds. Ben likes to write from experience, and through his writing, he lets the listener into his world.

Music has always been the biggest part of Ben's life. He picked up his first classical guitar aged 7 and was a choir boy at school early on. Growing up listening to Guns N Roses, the Beatles and Oasis inspired Ben to be a lead guitarist in a band. Ben began to teach himself electric guitar riffs and play along to rock music. By age 12 he was playing lead guitar in a band at school.

However, listening to artists including Ed Sheeran and Newton Faulkner inspired him to go solo and follow the singing route. At 14 he began to write his own music and as Ben grew older, his music began to take more of its own shape. He began adding guitar riffs to his acoustic music. This is audible in his first single Walked Away with multiple layers of guitar licks.

Ben started Walked Away with the guitar riff, before creating a vocal line over the guitar. He then found a beat that he liked with the song and took that into the studio with him to record the single.

Walked Away will be released on 2 June to coincide with Ben’s 20th birthday.
