about

‘City of Streets’ is Ben Hemming’s second studio album and was recorded in the small Norwegian town of Spydeberg, 40 mins away from the capital Oslo, at ‘Velvet Recording’ a state of the art studio with an impressive live room. This enabled Ben Hemming’s backing band to be recorded playing together and gave an amazing live vide to the album. It was produced by Nick Terry who has worked with some big names such as The Libertines, Ian Brown, and Klaxons. His initiative work ethic and production techniques gave the release a distinctive sound all of it’s own. The album was recorded in the bleak Norwegian winter of 2017, a factor that has no doubt added to the atmosphere and intensity of the recording.

The title of the album ‘City of Streets’ was chosen as the majority of the songs were written in London, were Ben Hemming is currently based, and were an attempt to embody the isolation that lies at the heart of the modern metropolis. The release is out now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Play, and Apple Music.
