Ben’s Brother

Ben’s Brother

We’ve given you Fightstar, Madina Lake and Steve Appleton, and now it’s the turn of mega-foxy Ben’s Brother to take over FemaleFirst for the day.

Heading into our office next Friday (July 31), the lovely Jamie Hartman from Ben’s Brother will be the next musician to reign control over my beautiful little music section and try his hand as a music journalist.

Reviewing all the latest album and singles, as well as interviewing a couple of his celeb best mates, my new celebrity best mate Jamie will be answering all of your questions so that you can get to know the man behind the music.

With a super fantastic new album, Battling Giants, and a sexy single on the way later this year, what better way to introduce this little tiger than with a day out at his favourite website?

So, anyone who loves Ben's Brother will know they're actually a five-piece band which was named after Jamie's big brother Ben, in whose shadow he lived as a teenager... look who's laughing now eh? And with a gold album already under their belt as well as a Ivor Novello Award nomination, you need to make sure this is the only website you visit next week… other than Facebook. Obviously.

So, because we love you, and we’d feel guilty keeping him all to ourselves, we want you to fill in the comment box below with your questions for Jamie, and we’ll get then answered for you! So get your thinking caps on kids… and if you’re super good, we might even let you win a prize or two. *Scream!*

    Jamie, how come you use a name that makes you sound like a solo artist?

    Do you want people to think you're just a solo singer like Marylin Manson?

    Thanks. xx

    I would like to ask Jamie from Ben's Brother what his favourite gig to date has been and if you're going to be doing any festivals this summer?

    Hi Jamie hope you are well.
    What I want to know is what what kind of music inspires you or you are influenced by?
    And how has your taste in music over time?

    Hi Jamie,
    If you weren't a musician what could you see yourself doing as an alternative career?

    Is your brother now known as Ben's Brother's Brother?

    Is this awkward for him?

    On your album there's a track with Joss Stone..

    Will that be released as a single? I really like it..

  17. by Gav 30th Jul 2009 10:15

    Hi Jamie,
    I'm a bit of a musician myself (I play guitar and write the odd song or two). I was just wondering what advice you would have for someone who wants a career in music?

    Hi there Jamie,

    If you could jump on a plane now, where would you go? Not that you'd want to leave this lovely british summer ;-)

    Hope you're ok! Jenny xxx
