Ben Ottewell: SXSW 2015

Ben Ottewell

We've never been shy about our love for Gomez, one of our favorite all-time live bands and creators of some truly beautiful albums. But it's been a while since the quintet has fed its hungry fans, so we're always listening extra-hard for news from their camp.

Thank goodness for Ben Ottewell.

His deep, gravelly voice was always Gomez's not-so-secret weapon, not that his guitar chops are anything to sneeze at, either. And Ben's been inspired to keep writing and recording, releasing two solo albums he wrote with old friend Sam Genders.

Ottewell's latest project, Rattlebag, was built from an enthusiastically funded Indiegogo campaign, further proof of his endurance in our hearts, minds and ears.
