Ben Ottewell & Ian Ball
Acclaimed British rock band Gomez's lead voices Ben Ottewell and Ian Ball are extending their intimate run of duo performances this summer. Celebrating 25 Years of Bring It On & Liquid Skin

Ottewell and Ball’s first release with Gomez, the 1998 break-out Bring It On, launched a spectacular career punctuated with the distinguished Mercury Prize, multiple platinum selling records and legions of devoted fans spanning three continents.

The duo’s performances will draw from Gomez fan-favourites, highlights from their respective solo projects, and perhaps offer an opportunity to road-test some of their newest work.
“May We Rock You Gently?”
Originally from Portland OR, Buddy performed his first solo show at the Hotel Café in July 2004.

Radio-wise, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic has featured several Buddy tunes on their Top Tune podcast as well as their morning radio show hosted by both Nic Harcourt and Jason Bentley.  Also, Buddy joined the likes of Aimee Mann on stage at Carnegie Hall to pay tribute to Elton John & Bernie Taupin.  As a producer, Buddy co-produced Ben Ottewell’s solo release Shapes and Shadows released 2011.
