Hello there! My name is Benjamin 'BeN HeNrY' Edwards.
I studied music at Brunel University in London had earned a music diploma and a 2:1 BA Hons degree in Popular Music. I studied harmonica (the first in Brunel’s history) under the guidance of Brendan Power.
I also studied West African percussion in Mali, France and London and have worked with Burkina Faso griot Baba Kone in his band ‘Jeli Masa’ for 3 years.
Living in London and Paris I continue to work as a session harmonicist for record labels, radio and TV work.
Currently I am working with Charlie Winston (Atmospheriques/ RealWorld Records). As of June 2009 the album 'Hobo' in France went platinum & we've had a No1 single with 'Like a Hobo.'
I also work in the UK with Joe Janiak (Colombia Records) and blow harp for Sam lewis (KT Tunstall).
Recent tours include supporting Peter Gabriel (Real World Records) and Tom Baxter (EMI) with Charlie Winston (Real World Records, Atmospheriques.)
