Ben Ottewell – Rattlebag (Live at Music Feeds Studio)
English singer and songwriter Ben Ottewell, also a member of award-winning English indie rock outfit Gomez, stopped by Music Feeds recently for a live streamed performance of his solo work, including an acoustic rendition of his song Rattlebag.
The Americana-inspired tune is the title track of his 2014 solo album, which displays the musician’s bluesy vocals set against the twang of his acoustic guitar.
Rattlebag, the album, follows on from Ottewell’s 2011 solo debut Shapes & Shadows and saw the English musician team up once again with his childhood friend and Shapes & Shadows writing partner Sam Genders.
The result is a lush collection of bluesy folk songs, that came into fruition thanks in part to to fans who supported the record via an Indiegogo crowd funded campaign.
