Finding the words that express the insatiable joy of being alive is something which may baffle the best of us. Benjamin Amos’ new album, Letters, is due for release later this year and manages to articulate this experience in a beautiful bundle of soulful, heart-lifting tracks. Born in Northern Ireland and based in Durham, the songwriter has been creating stunning, expressive music throughout the last decade; through intertwining his contemporary sound and Celtic roots, Amos has created a deeply authentic musical voice.

Amos releases the lead track on the album, Maelstrom, this month; offering an expansive journey of sounds, from stirring string accompaniments and beautiful vocal harmonies to uplifting rhythms and touching, heartfelt lyrics. It is difficult to listen to without feeling connected to your own experiences of relationships and heartache, as Amos has created a track which urges the listener to reflect on their own lives.
Amos and his captivating sound can be chased down this February on a short tour of the North East, which calls in at The Green Room in Stockton (Friday 18
