Acoustic songsmith Benjamin Francis Leftwich is heading out on an extensive U.K tour this autumn amidst a whirlwind of critical acclaim, and is kicking off the 24-date marathon at Stockton’s The Georgian Theatre on Fri 30 Sept.


Leftwich has been the talk of the radio in recent months with Jo Whiley, Dermot O’Leary, Zane Lowe and Greg James all pouring their support behind the young York native.


In the last year he has released four EP’s; A Million Miles Out led to his performance at Jo Whiley’s Little Noise Sessions at the Union Chapel. His track Atlas Hands was also named as one of Whiley’s tracks of 2010.


Further accolades were heaped on Leftwich following the release of second EP Pictures. Zane Lowe named the title track the Hottest Record In The World and it also became DJ Greg James’ Record Of The Week.


In April he filled Noah & The Whale’s support slot on their UK tour, casuing even more hype, and he will shortly be performing at a number of festivals, including the Camden Crawl, Dot-To-Dot, Bestival and Glastonbury.


Benjamin will be heading out on a headline tour starting with his date at The Georgian Theatre. He blew crowds at Intro Festival away with his floaty, melancholic vocals and deft fingerpicking; if you missed out then don't make the same mistake again!


The announcement follows that of other critically acclaimed artists Emmy The Great (Sat 24 Sept) and Willy Mason (Sat 27 Aug) heading to The Georgian.
