Music Submission, Ben Osborn

Artist or Band Name: 
Ben Osborn
Email Address: 

Ben Osborn is a British singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist based between Berlin, Germany and Bristol, UK. Fast Awake is Ben’s debut single and it is due for release on 23rd November 2018 via Nonostar Records, the label founded by German experimental violinist and producer Alex Stolze. Fast Awake is a taster for Ben’s debut album, Letters From The Border, due for release via Nonostar in Spring 2019. Letters From The Border was produced and composed by Ben and Alex during a residency at Alex’s studio complex on the German/Polish border in Summer 2018. 
Fast Awake has been informed by the music of the many cities where Ben has lived over the years. This includes an echo of the elegiac beauty of Thom Yorke’s solo work which references Ben’s childhood in Oxford; a dubby trip-hop ambience familiar to fans of the Bristol scene, where Ben has composed for the award-winning Fellswoop Theatre Company with French director Bertrand Lesca (Cheek by Jowl, Peter Brooke) since 2010; and a driving kick drum which evokes the classic techno synonymous with Berlin, where Ben is now partly based. Fast Awake is a sophisticatedly woven mix of prepared piano, stuttering percussion and processed strings which blend seamlessly to create a unique and beguiling sound world. 
The lyrics of Fast Awake articulate Ben’s feeling of living in a world that is ever shifting, often in an overwhelmingly rapid manner, “Everything’s changing so why can’t you change? Everything’s strange here and you are a stranger”. Fast Awake juxtaposes its themes of disorientation and anxiety with musical material built of complex, shifting harmonies, polyrhythmic beats and Alex Stolze’s shimmering, haunting violin melodies. 
Ben Osborn is the latest artist to join the Nonostar roster, which has also seen the release of Alex Stolze’s acclaimed solo albums Mankind Animal and Outermost Edge as well as Solo Collective Part One, the highly praised debut release from the modern classical trio of Alex Stolze with cellist Anne Müller and pianist/producer Sebastian Reynolds. Other Nonostar releases include the Mahajanaka EP by Sebastian Reynolds and the Aracus EP by German producer Qrauer. 
Ben's soundtracks and sound designs have won the Cameron Mackintosh Award, the Methuen Drama Emerging Artists Award, the Peter Brooke Empty Space Award and a Manchester Theatre Award.  His critically acclaimed libretti have been performed at London’s National Portrait Gallery, the Bristol Proms, BBC Radio 3’s live concert series and the RCM Britten theatre among other prestigious venues. He is a co-founder of and teacher at the Berlin Open Music Lab, a free school for refugee musicians.

Stephcynie
Email Address: 

Hailing from Houston, Texas, Stephcynie and her sound are both appropriately larger than life. Engaging a newfound confidence while keeping her commitment to full transparency, Stephcynie's music reflects real life issues that resonate with a universal audience. The consistent delivery of a dynamic, wide-ranging vocal by way of her distinctively sultry tone provides a take on R&B that is as relevant as it is refreshing yet remains true to Stephcynie's musical roots. She is eager to bring substance-filled music back into a commercial light by exhibiting versatility, similar to that of current global superstars Rihanna & Miguel, and by embracing the lyrical influence of John Mayer's vulnerable songwriting tactics and the prominent artistic inspiration drawn from musical genius Stevie Wonder. Her mission is to reestablish the popular standard by creating music with a message & authentic production. Having sung on records ranging from the infamous Kid Rock to pop country star Lauren Alaina and having performed with artists as notable as the legendary John Oates, Grammy & Oscar winner Christopher Cross, and Grammy winner Maren Morris, Stephcynie is certainly breaking boundaries. On October 12th, she plans to release "I Don't Love You", her innovative & expressive EP, where Stephcynie exposes more from the most personal aspects of her love story, as well the many other facets of her craft & talents.
