ben ottewell (Gomez)
We are so happy to announce that Ben Ottewell (Gomez) will be retuning to Loves on Friday, April 15th 2016. Support will be provided by the superb Jim Blair at 8pm. Tickets are £12.00 and are available to buy below and from Loves Cafe. Be sure to call us and book a table for supper in advance on 01934 645672.
As a singer and lead guitarist in rock band Gomez, Ben Ottewell is well known for his unmistakable voice and talent for blistering and inspired guitar solos. Rolling Stone declared, “Gomez’s not-so-secret weapon is Ben Ottewell.” And as GQ Magazine once wrote and anyone listening can attest, “[his] voice is not of this world.”
Since his first solo release, Shapes & Shadows (released by ATO, 2011), Ottewell has been pleasing audiences with a series of successful acoustic tours across the UK, US and Australia. Now with a newly-recorded album of songs for his second solo project, Rattlebag, the singer is set to return to the road, performing his new music.
On Rattlebag, Ottewell once again collaborated with childhood friend and his Shapes & Shadows writing partner Sam Genders, previously of Tunng. “Sam and I grew up together in a little village called Bonsall in Derbyshire and have been friends since childhood. I love his songwriting — the stuff he did with his bands Tunng and The Accidental, particularly lyrically.”
In Fall 2013, Ottewell decided to connect with his fan base to crowd-fund Rattlebag, and launched a pledge campaign on Indiegogo. “It seems to be a really honest way to do it,” Ottewell said at the time. “Indiegogo lends a kind of transparency into making the record…I feel long-term Gomez followers will really enjoy engaging in this way.” The experiment worked well and exceeded his fundraising goal, with enthusiastic supporters from around the world contributing to the recording of the album.
Simultaneously stripped-down and lush, Rattlebag is a collection of beautifully poetic tales of salvation and redemption, of sanctuary and braving rocky seas in search of distant shores. Ottewell’s infectious melodies and bluesy riffs will stick with you, and beg you to sing along.
“There’s a time and place for us / I will take you there,” he sings (“Shoreline”). Ben Ottewell proffers hope and promise accompanied by sublime acoustic and slide guitars, and that’s something we can all use.

Benjamin Folke Thomas
We are happy to introduce for the first time Swedish Americana Troubadour Benjamin Folke Thomas on May 21st
Swedish-born Benjamin Folke Thomas has been exciting London audiences since his arrival seven years ago. Appearances on Whispering Bob Harris’ Sunday show and BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends have taken his music to a wider audience.
A brilliant finger-picker, who cites ‘sad guys with guitars’ as his inspiration, he writes songs with depths of meaning – sometimes dark, often personal – possessing a lyrical and stylistic maturity beyond his years. Whether solo or backed by his three piece band of equally talented Swedish musicians, he delivers a show of pure quality and passion.
Tickets are priced at £6 on our website. You can book a table for supper if you’d like a seat in our balcony for this show- give us a call 01934 645672
Supper/opening act 20:15
Main show 21:00
