Single Review – Benjamin Booker – Believe 

Some tracks seem to transport you to another place or time and blues-punk singer-songwriter Benjamin Booker’s new single ‘Believe’ is the perfect example. Continuing Booker’s trademark Bobbie Gentry sipping Bourbon with Chuck Berry on a warm Mississippi delta charm, for 3 mins and 54 seconds nearly all your 2017 worries seem to drift away with the kind of subtle heartbreak lulled air, gospel-tinged strings and thoughtful guitar reserved for the likes of Otis Redding. Third single released from Booker’s brand new record, ‘Witness’, ‘Believe’ is a so wonderfully soulful it’s easy to see why Kings Of Leon recently announced Booker as their special guest for BST Hyde Park on July 7. Booker is also set to headline London’s Moth Club on July 4.
