It is with great pleasure and excitement to confirm that singer/songwriter Ben McKelvey will be supporting The Overtones on their 20 date UK Christmas tour for 2016.

With lyrical honesty and classic melodies, Ben has been likened to Bruce Springsteen, The Clash, and Paul Weller. His passionate performance and storytelling has captivated audiences across the UK and beyond.

Ben has performed hundreds of solo dates since 2011, embarked on a USA tour in 2014, he was an invited guest of the National competition Open Mic UK, and supported Wet Wet Wet on their 17 date UK Arena tour earlier this year.

His critically acclaimed studio album ‘Life and Love in England’ which came out earlier this year also reached the top ten in the iTunes singer/songwriter charts.
