Ben Wells and The Middle Names – Old Sea Salt April 12, 2011Folk
Ben Wells and The Middle Names (BW&TMN) is the hottest band coming out of Hobart, and they are living up to the hype. Currently the band is only weeks away from releasing their highly anticipated new tracks ‘Old Sea Salt and ‘Lullaby’.
The past year has been an exciting rise for this young group lead by songwriter and front man Ben Wells. They were right at home on the main stage at Falls Festival Marion Bay 2010/11, playing to thousands including an eager few hundred who bustled for prime position against the barriers. Likewise, a similar energetic crowd greeted the band as they stepped on stage at MS Fest 2011, One Fine Day Fest 2011, and O Week 2011.
The band’s rise was noted at the 2010 Amplified Awards – Tasmania’s highest accolades for contemporary music – winning Emerging Artist of the Year, Indie/Pop Artist of the Year and Folk Artist of the Year.
BW&TMN has a legion of followers, both 18+ and underage, selling out shows in their home city Hobart with over 300 people attending.
They have toured Melbourne, with gigs at renowned venues The Espy and supporting The Little Stevies at the East Brunswick Club.
