“TOO LONG GONE”

From his album “ATLANTIC”
Ben Glover grew up in the sleepy seaside village of Glenarm in County Antrim. The music of Americana artists mixed with traditional Irish songs was the soundtrack of his childhood. As a student in the summer holidays he paid his way across the Atlantic by performing the songs of Dylan and Springsteen in the pubs at home and The Pogues and Christy Moore in the bars in Boston.
Having spent a lot of time visiting the States Ben decided to try his luck in Nashville, he re-located there in 2009 where has carved out a successful career as a performer and songwriter.
“TOO LONG GONE” is taken from Ben’s fifth album “ATLANTIC” which was recorded in a studio Ben set up with Nashville producer NEILSON HUBBARD and guitarist KRIS DONEGAN in the living room of the house in Ballyliffin, Co Donegal where Ben vacationed as a child. They were joined by two of Ben’s long time musical collaborators MATT McGINN and COLM McLEAN.
Ruth Jones (Stella, Gavin & Stacey) is a big fan of Ben’s and his songs featured prominently in the very popular series “Stella” shown on Sky TV.
ATLANTIC will be released on SEPTEMBER 1st 2014
