Every Kingdom was originally released on 30th September 2011.
Already mentioned in the same hushed, reverent tones as Bon Iver, Jose Gonzales and John Martyn. Building on a solid framework of nimbly plucked guitar strings and luscious backing vocals, Howard’s soaring voice dishing out glorious choruses like they’re going out of fashion. “Radio-friendly it may be, but there’s nothing fey about Howard’s folk: his up-tempo numbers have the muscular momentum of a galloping stallion, while his more subdued songs are underpinned by sinewy rhythms and a certain weightiness of theme. For example, the lovely ‘Everything’ deals with the inevitability of renewal and change, while the slow-building and panoramic ‘Black Flies’ is essentially a break-up song.
It is Ben’s best-selling album to date, with almost 1m sold in UK alone and 2.5m sales of the album globally.
Every Kingdom went 2x Platinum in the UK, Platinum in Holland and Gold in both the USA and Germany.
The album was nominated for the 2012 Mercury Music prize, as well as Ben winning Best British Breakthrough and Best British Solo Artist at the 2013 Brit Awards off the back of the release and tour.
