Benjamin Clementine: Live in the UK

Great to see Benjamin Clementine getting some exposure in the UK following his success in France.

While an artist originally from the UK his move to Paris established him as a musician, while living on the margins of society and busking for a living.

His unique voice and style saw him signed in France, and key gigs at the Francofolies de La Rochelle in June 2013 an at the Transmusicales de Rennes in December 2013.

This year saw him win a well-deserved  Victoire de la musique award in February, following the release of his At Least for Now debut album in France in January.

That album has just recently been released in the UK, with shows in the UK in May as part of his European tour.
