Samantics is a next generation one man band. Using a loop-station and a sh*t load of instruments he creates live, multi-instrumental spoken word. He’s not a stereotypical rapper, he’s not into maiming and murking Gs but he does like gaming a slurping tea.

Ben Calvert & The Swifts are influenced by British folk, early 90’s Indie and US Psychedelia. Audiences and reviewers have been charmed by Ben’s understated post-folk sound that has melodic, narrative, songwriting at the core.

Dartington Dreams and Nightmares is the new release by Ben Calvert & The Swifts. Dartington College of Arts was an experimental arts school, hidden away on a country estate in Devon; a beautiful, isolated, inspiring and haunted place, with its own ancient and modern myths and legends. Ben studied Theatre there for three years.

This EP tells the stories of lives within the setting of its sprawling gardens, historic buildings and performance studios.

The 12 inch vinyl of the EP will be available for the first time at this Birmingham show.
