Singer-songwriter Ben Stafford recorded and self-produced his latest single, Open Arms. If you are fans of Mumford and Sons and Vance Joy, then this is a song for you. On first listen I was blown away by Ben’s voice, the beautiful soft vocals, lyrics and sophisticated guitar work are a few of my many favourite aspects of the song.
When words fail me
Actions are all that I have
So take these open arms
Cos darling I ain’t taking
Yeah darling I ain’t taking them back
In Ben’s own words, Open Arms “is about those nights in relationships, where you fight or argue, and you wish it never happened, and all you want to do is hug and make up because the love of those two people will always be bigger than any row or argument!”
Quite simply a masterpiece. I will be keeping an eye out for Ben’s gigs after lockdown.
Go give Open Arms a stream below! You won’t regret it.
