Ben J. Wood is Yo’true and Yo'True is an explosion of vibrant colour and style - unfamiliar sounds brought to life and familiar sounds made fresh.
The first Yo’true record, ‘Wild Rice’, is yacht rock smooth, R&B groove and British soul. It is stark, glorious honesty. You hear the punk rock freedom of his teens, re-interpretation of 1980s American AOR, the ‘real’ dance rhythms of Cuba and South America and as many great ideas as you can fit into eight classic pop songs.
At his new desk in East London; an organised storm of synthesisers, herbal teas and felt pens, Ben combines his own unique and energising drawing, painting and songwriting styles. He draws the same way he writes and the same way he feels: colours, emotions and absolutely no rules. He plays all of his own recorded instruments (although technically, he has no idea how to), he creates his own artwork, makes his own clothes and manages his own tours.
Have a go on this sultry slow jam 'Time Trials' as the antidote to debut single 'The Dough'. Believe in it.
