Benjamin Clementine
  • Edinburgh International Festival

One of the greatest singer-songwriters of his generation, Benjamin Clementine delivers deeply personal songs of shattering power and searing emotional honesty. Clementine won the Mercury Prize in 2015 with his beautiful debut album At Least For Now.

His poetic songs, honest and inquisitive in style, frequently question the nature of the society we live in today. Comparisons have been made with Nina Simone, Anohni and Edith Piaf, but with his impassioned and stirring tenor, Clementine orbits a musical sphere that is entirely his own.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
