LeeStock welcomes Ipswich based pianist Benjamin Bloom to Suffolk on 25th May 2013.
In the darkest depths of Ipswich, a shadowy figure sits in a poorly lit studio, diligently plotting his impending world domination. Once simply the friendly neighbourhood keyboard player for Channel 4’s ‘Road to V’ Winners Rosalita, Benjamin Bloom lost the love of his life last year to a terminal illness, but the music didn’t stop.
Remerging heartbroken yet empowered in 2010, Bloom mixes cautionary lyrical fables with luscious melodies, bombastic pianos and the filthiest electro beats to create decadently melodramatic popular music – think Sparks, Queen, Danny Elfman, think fright night Elton John. Already making a name for himself on the national touring circuit and a regular on BBC Suffolk Introducing’s radio show, surrender yourself to Benjamin Bloom.
