Ben Selleck, Soul Food - Country Release Friday

Ben Selleck Releases Second Single ‘Soul Food’

UK country newcomer Ben Selleck has released his second single today and is our Country Release Friday pick with MAM Roots. Soul Food comes hot on the heels of Ben’s debut release Different Sides which soared to #1 in the UK Country iTunes Chart this May. The new track represents represents the moment of tentatively creeping out of lockdown and reconnecting with family and friends and is available now on all digital platforms

“The soul food link gave me and the musicians scope to explore a more southern, gospel type of feel as well as my Country & Soul roots that I hope become a familiar theme to my music”, Ben explains about Soul Food.

“I have had so much fun recording this track. It wasn’t until Lockdown eased and I finally got to meet up with band members when the idea to create a more New Orleans vibe was discussed. So a remotely recorded Gospel Choir (Natalie Jenkin-Smith of Total 80’s, 

Tony Perry of ChangesTwoBowie, Austin Barber of the Essex Blues Brothers, Country artist Tara Henton providing ad-libs and Scarlet River Managements own Rachel Sellick) and a Horn part (written and performed by Paul Beddow of Faux Fighters UK) was added to great effect. Not to mention the fantastic talents of Adam Wright on guitar, Jacob Sludden on drums, and once again Paul Beddow on Bass. I’m so indebted to these musicians for giving me their time and creating something that I’m really proud of in this single.”
