      Bio

      Inspired by the Blues, infused with a hard hitting, “in-yer-face” rock approach and topped-off by virtuoso musicianship, Ben Poole is being talked of as “the” new up-and-coming UK Blues guitarist; one of the finest to have emerged in Europe for years. Having already played with and received critical acclaim from some of his heroes; legendary blues artists including Jeff Beck, Gary Moore and John Mayall, at just 22 years of age it appears that there is no stopping this young and incredibly gifted guitarist. His latest recordings reinforce this and make it blatantly clear that Ben is destined for a great future on the European Blues/Rock scene.
      The past year has been an extremely exciting one for Ben, seeing his name crop up regularly in Europe’s biggest selling guitar magazine ‘Total Guitar’ who recently named Ben as “the guitarist to watch out for in 2010”. Ben has realised a life long dream to play with one of his favourite living musicians – US guitarist/singer/songwriter Richie Kotzen, touring with him on Richie’s October 2009 UK tour. In the past year Ben has also had the privilege of jamming on stage with two of his other heroes; Jeff Beck and Gary Moore.
      Besides Ben’s own solo career, he also spent much of the past few years touring extensively around the UK as lead guitarist with ‘Ruf Records’ blues artist Dani Wilde. The group toured in Switzerland, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal, France, The Canary Islands and Germany as well as frequently around the UK, making appearances at festivals such as Maryport Blues Festival in Cumbria (supporting John Mayall and The Blues Band), Fricktaler Blues Festival in Switzerland, Brecon Jazz Festival in Wales and Rhythm Festival in Milton Keynes.
      2011 will see Ben Poole and his band do their first headlining UK tour in March and playing some of the biggest festivals in Europe, including 2 shows at the prestigious 'Glastonbury Festival' on 23rd and 24th June. Ben was the only unsigned blues roots artist to ever play at the ‘Download’ festival in Donnington Park back in June 2010, playing alongside artists including Aerosmith, AC-DC and Rage Against The Machine. Ben also played on much of Dani Wilde's latest album for 'Ruf Records'; 'Shine', working with legendary British blues producer Mike Vernon (Eric Clapton/Peter Green/Fleetwood Mac/John Mayall/Buddy Guy).
