Ben's Guide To Piano: A Creative Journey
by Ben Spooner & Hayley Cannon
Part method, part memoir, this intimate guide to learning the piano is quite unlike anything else around. Key words here are creativity and curiosity. Curiosity is scientifically proven to enhance learning and Ben has taken it upon himself to hold your attention. Peppered with evocative vignettes of a life lived with music at its heart, Ben emerges as the teacher you always wished you’d had. An authoritative voice, blending theory with lessons from the school of life. If there’s one thing he wants you to know it’s that learning an instrument is a gift you give yourself and that Ben’s Guide To Piano is the perfect companion for the road. Available 2021.
Who Are You? Album
by Hayley Cannon feat. Nick Edward Harris
Produced by Nick Trepka
My debut album Who Are You? was inspired by diaries capturing the bonds and relationships that shaped my twenties. This was my intimate exploration of identity, attachment, longing and finding.
Introduced by Tom Robinson for BBC6Music.
'Honest and exposing’ - The Roundhouse.
‘One to watch’ - The Guardian.
‘Sometimes choral, sometimes serene and brimming with personal wanderings. ‘Who Are You?’ feels, on occasion, naked: It’s raw yet perfectly produced, touching and intimate yet at the same time wholly sensational.’ - Circuit Sweet
It is kind of a surrender album where you could put on the LP and have it flip over and over and just listen to it non-stop.’ - TalkNerdyWithUs
'Punchy yet haunting and filled with passionate emotion.' - Popped Music
