International blues, rock, soul guitarist, singer and songwriter Ben Poole is set to release his brand-new studio album Anytime You Need Me on September 14th, 2018 via Manhaton Records.
You can pre-order the album HERE.
The new album follows Ben’s critically acclaimed albums Time Has Come, 2016 and Live At The Royal Albert Hall which was recorded by the BBC in 2014.
Ben Poole has also released a video for his cover of the Don Henley 1982 single “Dirty Laundry”. The video is directed by Marcus Sweeney Bird of The Birdhouse Studio.
Ben Poole’s new album, Anytime You Need Me was recorded at Superfly Studios in Ollerton, Nottinghamshire and was produced and co-written by King King drummer, Wayne Proctor . “It was an absolute joy to work again with Wayne,” says Ben Poole. “He has a great ear and knows me well as an artist, and the result is amazing.”
The new studio album marks a point in Ben’s career where he feels he has really found himself as an all-round guitarist, singer and song-writer. The best representation on a studio record so far of the attitude, energy and excitement that he brings to his live shows. The album is a melting pot of rock, blues and soul but with a pop sensibility in the songwriting allowing it to feel accessible throughout. The overall sound showcases a lot of grit and a swagger, with special emphasis on guitar tones and instrumental performances from everyone who played on the album. Ben also co-wrote the album with writing partner Steve Wright. To celebrate the release of the new album Ben will embark on a 14-date UK tour in November and December 2018.
