Ben’s Brother’s full-length debut, ‘Beta Male Fairytales’, was released in the U.S. on December 4th. The album will include “Stuttering” and a host of equally irresistible compositions ranging from the old school soul of the anthemic “Rise” to gloriously vulnerable ballads such as “Let Me Out.”


Hartman’s astounding voice can break your heart in one song and send it soaring in the next. And the UK press has already taken note. “Hartman…knows his way around a beautiful chord progression and an emotive lyric,” said London’s Sunday Times, going on to describe the band’s songs as “immaculately rough-hewn” while the Daily Mail praised their “blend of vintage soul and Stones riffs.” The band has also elicited praise from fellow UK artist James Morrison, who praised their “great songs with beautiful arrangements,” advising: “take a listen.”
