Benjamin Clementine is an artist of immediate and extraordinary talent. The day after making his New York performance debut, Benjamin Clementine made his U.S. radio debut with this session at WFUV.

After seeing his show at Joe's Pub I was nervous yet excited to share his music. His songs are deeply felt and performed with lyrical heft and solid chops. He is London-born, Paris-based and possesses a unique style that will bring him around the world with his unique music.

Editor's note: Benjamin Clementine won the 2015 Mercury Prize in November for his debut album, At Least For Now.
