We've been trump came on the show for what feels like forever now that in a moment I'm joined by the the one the only Mr Ben Simmons and Ben. I'm doing very well thank you. I want to just chat to a little bit about your you coming on the show so let's tell the listeners at <hes> what happened the last time you would use on the show because that was two three weeks ago yes back in October. I think yeah it must have been about a month ago a certain someone got sick. I think I think so pretty much the whole gist of it it was about I it must have been about twelve hours before you just had to message and I'm really sorry I've never I the first time I've ever cancelled someone the day because I just I just realized I just woke up that morning and when I can't I'm not going to be yeah. I'm not going to be there twelve o'clock at night so I'm not even going to try I. I'm very glad that you accepted our invitation to. I want to be here for resheduled now. Then let's give everyone who's maybe not heard your music before less LE- let's hear your wikipedia page Yep okay so <hes> I am a twenty two year old singer Songwriter. I'm originally from career and <hes> I came to Lincoln during my second year Uni my folks moved up here and of course when I graduated I I moved up here. <hes> my influences came from a very very young age with grew up listening to fill call INS and and the eagles and and things like that and then in college when I studied Performing Arts in college so I have I have a kind of drama re kind of background and done that came with me in college and then my music kind of grew from there and I started to gain folk influences his <hes> from you know Ben Howard Charlie Simpson at cheer and of course in John Mayer with the blues kind of stuff and then it escalated to uni. That's where I can't find my <hes> my own sound and that's kind of where I started writing properly and <hes> yeah what I've got now is a kind of a combination of all my thoughts feelings and memories from university and that's what my debut ep from just writing for my union room really and the is called lighten shakes and like you said it was written a about your time in unions around your time yeah over a course of three years at Uni and different memories. I've got and different thoughts feelings and stuff leading up to that point as well really well. You're in for a treat this evening ladies and gentlemen. It's a great set of tracks and we're going to be hearing all four of them this evening. We're going to kick things off with what I always visioned as the title track the lead single pretty much it was going as soon as I wrote it. I just thought this is going to be the head of something and just happened to be the which is Fab so yeah to work that one out I and Olivia yes it about so it's about someone that I met during freshers. It's is not her real name. Of course it's just an alias but yeah it's just it's more or less some. How do I spent so it's kind of it's from a subject? They're not always not gosh. Current experiments got much from Woodward. <hes> it's it's based on experience. That didn't turn out the way you more or less wanted to so it was kind of it was kind of a fresh thing when it happened. I I go back to my room and in a few days went past and I was right. I really need to get my. I need to get my feelings on my thoughts out and yeah it was Fri.. I mean you meet people from all over and sometimes you just you just get into some situations that don't go your way of course and that's life and <hes> yeah so Olivia stems from that and <hes> yeah it's. It's probably wall say. It's probably like you said the head of the E._p._a.. It's a it's a head song so I'm really glad that gets the message. Did you cross where you're listening to siren radio.

We were saying the same I wasn't looking for a promise Oh commitment but it was never just done and the thought you would if this is not the way Oh you realize what you want it. It's a bit too much to lay on a single time. God knows don't Oughta know that they don't know Ed share and spend was just saying that <hes> he's not heard that song in a long time but he was singing along in the injury term on the show so far indeed yes. Yes I feel blessed. Thank you so much and he you you mentioned that you started really getting into music when you're at college but you have a background in performance. Did you say you did stage co when I was younger yeah. I'm during my school days and then when I got to college it's kind of where I wanted to well before college. I wanted to do an art course actually because I used to love our school but then about two weeks before my course was due to start. I said this isn't right for me so emergency on the phone to my mum's I want to change my costs so go into the plumbing us and kind of where stone from because of the stage coach thing it was just building up confidence and communication skills and everything else like that and then yeah just kind of went through. Do you think that's helped you when it comes to life as a musician and being a musician 'cause it's it's so much more than just I think we touched on this earlier. When we were off air is so much more as well than just write music performing for music to a crowd? There's also the you know managing yourself and presenting yourself exactly I mean presenting yourself is probably one of the most important things to me holding a conversation being that person behind the music as well and having an having that I think is really important is it's as important as creating the music ready so and we're going to talk now about the second song from your EP. Let's talk about it wasted. Yes so again written uni <hes> but it's it's more it's not really an experience of mine. It's more I wrote it with everyone in mind so as more of a generalized thing of people talking when they're intoxicated folks get it so one I had I had an image of in my head of a of a story of two lovers who had broken up and one night they were both drunk and they might have messaged and and said something that they shouldn't have but they're trying to rebuild that relationship through the premise of alcohol. I think that's kind of where I went with that and yeah it's more of a generalized thing where people when they're intoxicated in my message. The person shouldn't have or or something like that. I think we've been there so yes kind of wasted is wasted on whiskey and wine well. Let's take a listen. You're listening to siren radio. This is Ben Simmons performing live in the studio. It's wasted a hard earned the mine seper Ruthie bonus for your does call me crazy but maybe there where does that leave me with Gye.

You're listening to siren radio in that was a wasted now then you mentioned that you grew up in Herefordshire. Take off on this so you knew I was going to get it wrong looking down to the piece of paper going Oh this is one of those words are used to break. We'll just having to Chan the student. Eh used to do a breakfast. Show here where we had to read the sports news every morning. My Co present Chris used to give me the region the resource as to barely our our news operates operating system and it would just have the he'd always pick like the tennis match results with the worst names to pronounce just reminded me of that so anyway little tangent there so you've been out for you moved Lincoln and after being a university in Northampton and how have you found Lincoln's music scene sin to arrived yes so I was I was pretty I suppose naive would be the term when I got to to Lincoln. I had absolutely no idea where anything was. The only time I've been Lincoln was when my because my grandparents live up here as well so that's the only Tom I'd really kind of gone into Lincoln so staying here permanently for the moment was was a bit daunting. It was a new city but it was also really it was great at the same time you know a a new place to explore a new new people knew everything so it was fantastic so the music scene was was really new to me and it was only recently I go in and played a few open mics and things at different places and I thought to myself wow this is this is such a lively city for the music scene surprising naturally because Lincoln's quite in comparison to maybe Nottingham and Oxford and stuff like that where the music scene huge and you hear a lot about it you don't really hear much from Lincoln but when you get into the office it's fantastic and it needs to be recognized more. I think and you recently performed at the some affiliate yes I did yeah with with a balanced the bands and it was the most exciting experience I've had up here. It's fantastic. I loved it so well. I'm sure people will be really excited to see perform live. We're GONNA give coming up not recently no art again. It's it's kind of taking every opportunity as it comes so I'm still figuring that yeah every opportunity of course I will. I will sing for everyone and anyone well. You're listening to siren radio.

Were celebrating the fact that your Monday Sunday is almost over and choose day is on its way and hopefully hopefully things are going to get a little bit brighter from here but that spills over. Let's get back to our guest Mr Ben Simmons. It's been great how many in studio so far now wh let's talk a little bit about. Let's talk about the the right so what was the the main story of so you mentioned this university background and all of that got nice vibe to it in that came out more as a compliment than a question but he's got a great vibe to it in your style. I can see I can see your influences. You know we can all look on your. I apparently the twelfth influential on many that you're hearing tonight you know Ben Howard's one and share and that is not the kind of music that you want to make now going forward essentially yeah I mean I think the blues aspect of everything didn't come in until today's why kind of gained that folk influence at college and then the Blue I listened to a during Union listen to so much John Mayer you know and more to throw stick and eventually he became my top three most favorite artists of all time and it was because of his influence where the blues kind of started <hes> I was very fortunate Senate to get an electric guitar and just kind of go without Blues Rhythm and stuff and Yeah it's it's always been influenced producing the with Olivia especially. I wanted that to be very upbeat very very blues driven very gritty. I think I love that word. Gritty rates is a good word and that's that's pretty much how you would describe in one word I would say gritty to that to that song especially but yeah that's kind of where it came from and then older older influences Stevie Ray Vaughan and and stuff like that it's kind of all came into one. That's a massive once in the thing and when did you start playing guitar. I started. It's coming up to about ten years now back in her chair. When I was when I was younger I think it was probably about twelve had had a few lessons and they they didn't work out? I was at that age where I just found it quite boring. I started it was it was only electric. Guitar started found it quite boring and after a few lessons I stopped for a good year zero site and then one time I went into the attic and I found my mom had a very very old acoustic guitar that she had neurotics when she was little and at about two strings on it was a very bad thing and I brought it down. I used used to play you know. Let's let's try this. Let's try and Acoustic for one time so I started playing on these two this to string guitar and it kind of picked up his I kind of miss this and I was around the age ride it just kind of clicked and I started ah throwing a few things up on youtube and stuff and then it just grew from there yes so it's about ten years now when it comes to writing your own music. Do you find that that like helps you a lot in the case of the do you see what I'm trying to say like <hes> I'm getting on my words when when it comes to writing your own music. Do you feel that that's a good way of putting your passion forward of giving you another avenue of how to say things yeah. Definitely I mean it's it's another aspect of my life which I care deeply about. If I don't know what to say put it on us on <hes> I think that's it's an important part of me and sometimes you know you you get this thing of about action sale out of the words and they do of course but sometimes the song says louder than anything so yeah that's kind of where that comes from and we're GonNa hear one of her songs. Now is called fire. Was it about so plain and simple spot my best sprint one of my sons. We knew each other in school since he a ten of nine seven years now and it got to the point where I just I don't know about it. I mean it was she. You know she's a very important person to me and <hes> we've been through so much together over the past seven years and it was just it was just a not to say thank you I suppose and just to say that I still care of course and yeah it's just it pays much. That's it's been nice way of going. She's been running at me for years to write a song about a white you run. What about Olivia wanted me anyway? Let's listen before a game in any trouble. Ben Simmons is performing live in the studio and they says fire <music> and not you will bovine class ride run by yours.

It's time to sit back relax and while you get the gist by now midnights wants to get back home. Lucy's back home sleep do not cry Blue Moon your the guy who sing <music> long Suzhou scab and shoes you aw sea uh-huh the golden slumbers by elbow he'll listening to siren radio obviously originally by the Beatles and then covered by elbow last Christmas in fact for the Big Joe Louis Adverts and we'll talk about that in a few moments time but we you Muslims Valentine if you've been tuned in ten pm this evening have heard the fantastic local artist Ben Simmons live in the studio performing tracks from his debut ep light and shade available where all good music can be found but now it really is time to sit back relax and chill out of got the lines down low in the studio. I'm looking out across the Beret foot into the night sky Galleon the Golden Nice Little Lights <hes> down the pathway outside the studio now which <hes> which is really going to set the mood for walking home but before I get into the mood of you know looking forward to walk home and get into my nice I slumber filled bed. <hes> we still got fifty five minutes left a programming fifty five minutes left of your Monday and then we can celebrate the fact that it's over and choose day. He's on its way so I mentioned that was golden slumbers by elbow and that was released last year as a part of their <hes> that big John Lewis Campaign and we seen it basically pop again next week if you've had televisions on if you've seen it on the news you'll have seen this <hes> Elton. John is the man behind the John Lewis adver this year and personally. I really enjoyed it. I really liked I think he's a he's a great look. They've been some sinister syndicalism online syndicalism fast the word some people have been down online and say now is just a bit of a promotion for his for his new film. That's coming out and his new album but honestly slate if you just look at it the real facts of showing a showing how the true story of how this great artist was created buying gift given at Christmas by his mother. I think he's just a really nice beautiful Christmas tale. I'm before I said the word Christmas too much must take a listen to a little bit of Elton. John Sorry seems to be the hardest word with taking you up to midnight here on Siren Radio and Chill Cat Valentine. Well me gotTa do you can do strikes wakes me and do you want on me.

Sorry seems to be the hardest word Elton John a really actually think that's one of Elton. John's underrated songs like to me is not the first one that I think of when I think of Johnny now you think of your your song you think of rocket man but so he seems to be the hardest word is known as it's a mouthful to say on the radio. Let's put it that way but it's a great great song to sit back relax and chill to especially especially here on your Monday evenings. One of you got coming up over the next seven days.
