About Ben Denny Mo

Who Is Ben Denny Mo?

Born in South London but grew up in Gozo, one of the Maltese islands.


Ben currently lives in North Norfolk, but his eyes are on the world. 







Influences & Musical Path

A recent article likened Ben Denny Mo’s voice to “the playful rhythms of Jack Johnson, the grunts of Dave Matthews and Bruce Springsteen, the inflections of Michael Jackson, the croons of Sam Smith – and a variety of ’90s vocal techniques as heard in Hootie & the Blowfish’s “Use Me”, Counting Crows’ “Mr. Jones”, Del Amitri’s “Roll To Me”, Dave Matthews Band’s Crash Into Me, and even Maroon 5’s “This Love”.”


Ben suffers from severe dyslexia and discovered at an early age that playing the guitar and singing was the perfect escape from the academic struggles he had at school. As a young teenager he could be found playing alongside some of Malta’s best musicians and this played a big part in influencing his musical style which covers soul, funk, folk, jazz, reggae, and ska.


The likes of John Martyn, Led Zeppelin, and John Butler have also heavily influenced his guitar playing and he has become known as the “2 capo man”, often performing with 2 capos on his acoustic guitar. 


His first single Heart Sleeves was a BBC Norfolk Record of the Week and he performed at BBC Music Day. BBC Introducing in Norfolk are big fans of Ben. In 2019 he has played Small World at Glastonbury, Give, Small World Summer Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival, as well as a live session on The James Whale radio show.  Ben is a must-see emerging artist in Norfolk and London, twice being invited to play at Omeara.


In 2018 Ben recorded 6 songs with producer/engineer Rhys Downing (Mark Ronson), who took Ben’s acoustic songs and created a wall of sound.  Summer 2019 saw Ben working again with Rhys Downing, recording new songs in studios in Norfolk and and London (including Abbey Road). The resulting sound is sometimes reminiscent of Mark Ronson/Amy Winehouse and looks set to introduce Ben to a new audience of fans. 


The first song, Eden, from most recent recordings was released on 21st February 2020.

Exclusive Website Video

You won't currently find this elsewhere so this is an exclusive BenDennyMo.com.  Whilst recording at Abbey Road Studios last year I played a couple of instrumental jams with a great drummer John Russell.  We totally winged it with no rehearsal. 


Christmas Video

I was invited in to BBC Radio Norfolk at Christmas to play some festive songs on the Sophie Little Show.  This is the first song I played - Someday At Christmas - originally released by Stevie Wonder.  I dug out an old Pearl Jam version and gave it a Ben Denny Mo spin. People seem to like it with over 25,000 plays on my Facebook page in just over a week.
