Musician and writer Ben Watt is most well-known for his twenty years as songwriter-performer-producer with Tracey Thorn in Everything But The Girl (1984-2000) and subsequent ten years as an acclaimed DJ, BBC 6Music presenter and label owner of Buzzin' Fly Records. Before Everything But The Girl, as a solo artist in the early 80s his early solo work drew comparisons with John Martyn and Tim Buckley. He collaborated with Robert Wyatt on his breakthrough 5-track EP ‘Summer into Winter’ in 1982, and his minimal folk-jazz debut ‘North Marine Drive’ was UK Independent Album Chart No. 1 in 1983. In 2014 he returned to his folk-jazz roots, teaming up with guitarist-sideman Bernard Butler for the award-winning solo album ‘Hendra’. The follow-up 'Fever Dream' was released in spring 2016 to wide acclaim. He has also written two much-admired memoirs; the most recent, ‘Romany and Tom’, was longlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize 2014.
