Ben Leece - Smoke Signals

Ben Leece - Smoke Signals
Ben Leece's debut album No Wonder the World is Exhausted was engineered, produced and mixed by prominent singer-songwriter and ARIA award-winner Shane Nicholson.

Nicholson performs extensively on the album, adding guitars, bass, piano, organs, percussion and backing vocals. Also amongst the A-list band are pedal steel guru Jason Walker, drummer Pete Drummond, renowned fiddle player Luke Moller, and vocalist Katie Brianna. The result is a classic country sound that doesn’t overplay its hand, allowing the quality of Leece’s songwriting to speak for itself.

No Wonder the World is Exhausted is bound to continue Leece’s organic rise through the ranks of Australian music, following on from the debut 7” single ‘Trace’ in 2017, which snagged him “Alt-Country Song of the Year” at the 16th annual Independent Music Awards. Leece was soon also in the Top 15 finalists in the Americana Music Prize of Australia, along with a semi-final win at the Listen Up Music Songwriter's Awards.

Expect many more accolades to follow. Because the world may be exhausted, but it’s about to wake up to Ben Leece.

About this track...

Highlighting Ben Leece's resonant vocals and emotive lyrics on this evocative slow-burner, Leece sums up the two sides of a strained relationship with a single cutting image on 'Smoke Signals': “Cheap cigarette still burnin’, bitch ‘bout the smoke stuck in your eye.”

Produced by and featuring Shane Nicholson, Golden Guitar nominated Katie Brianna (backing vox), Luke Moller & Pete Drummond.
