BEN LEECE ‘PAPER THIN’

SINGLE OUT FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1

Click Here To Pre-Save

 

Fresh from touring his acclaimed debut album, No Wonder The World Is Exhausted, we are proud to announce new music from singer/songwriter, Ben Leece. Recorderd with his band, Left Of The Dial, and featuring performances from Melbourne mates, Georgia State Line, Ben describes Paper Thin as a love letter to the music community he has found himself in.

 

“It’s been a rough year, both personally and for this greater musical community. We’ve lost some friends and felt a darkness but there has also been an awareness of the folks around me – everyone is looking out for each other. We all hurt. We all deal with our own madness. Paper Thin is an affirmation to be there for the people that have been there for me.”

 

Paper Thin has been a popular staple and crowd favourite in the Left Of The Dial set. recorded between Newcastle and Melbourne, it’s a different sound to what we might expect from Ben, drwaing influence from Booker T & The MG’s Time Is Tight.

KATIE BRIANNA + PETA CASWELL & THE LOST CAUSE

SIGN WITH STANLEY RECORDS

Stanley Records is very happy to announce the signing of 2 extraordinary artists in Katie Brianna and Peta Caswell & The Lost Cause.

 

Katie Brianna was first “discovered” by Paul Kelly at the age of 15 and her last album was up for a Golden Guitar Award (her second nomination) but expect the unexpected when her new album arrives in September. The album is being produced by labelmate and frequent collaborator, Adam Young (ex-Daisygrinders, Big Heavy Stuff) and her song writing has never been stronger. Her band on the album features Young, as well as members of the Cruel Sea, the Re-Mains and Spurs For Jesus.

 

Peta Caswell’s surname may sound familiar. She is the niece of legendary Australian singer/songwriter, Allan Caswell, and talent definitely runs in the family. Peta appeared on last year’s ground-breaking Take Me To Town compilation and when many were asked what their favourite tracks on the album were, Peta’s name was the most frequent response and she received a wealth of airplay as a result. The band’s soulful alternative country rock sound is the perfect accompaniment for Peta’s powerhouse voice. The self-titled EP from Peta Caswell & The Lost Cause drops May 3, with the debut album following early in 2020.

Newcastle based Americana singer-songwriter Ben Leece has been making his mark since the release of his highly praised debut album, No Wonder The World is Exhausted (produced by Shane Nicholson).  His rich resonant voice & emotive song-writing has seen Ben receive rave reviews & airplay around the country, as well as pick up the ‘Best Alt Country Single’ award for Trace (feat. Tori Forsyth) at the Global Independent Music Awards in 2018. Along with performances at TCMF & Dashville Skyline Festival, Ben has shared stages with Courtney Marie Andrews, Joe Pug, Tim Rogers, Tori Forsyth and more…  Catch Ben in full band mode with his sidekicks Left of the Dial, and listen out for new single Nothing (Not Anymore).
