Discovery: Benedict Cork

Described by Elton John as “a name to look out for”, it’s high time to discover London singer-songwriter Benedict Cork.

By Graeme Smith

There is a touch of the Elton himself in Benedict’s new track Therapy. Opening with subtle piano and peaceful vocals, Therapy quickly hits its stride in the first chorus with Benedict belting, with feeling, that “maybe I… could use some therapy.” Just when you think you’ve got the measure of the track, though, the full arrangement of drums and strings kick in. It’s a perfect tear-jerker, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Therapy follows the release of Benedict’s debut EP Piano Tapes. You can check it out below.
