hmv's Next Big Thing... #57 Ben Abraham
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you rising troubadour Ben Abraham...

Ben Abraham, he's 29 years old and hails from Australia. His previous endeavours include collaborations with Gotye and Sara Bareilles and he's newly signed to Secretly Canadian (the same label as The War On Drugs, Jens Lekman and more). His debut album Sirens arrives next month.
Who Does He Sound Like?
Stripped back folk with a spiky underbelly. Think I'm Wide Awake It's Morning era Bright Eyes, Elliott Smith, classic Cat Power, that sort of thing.
Why Should I Be Excited?
He's got a gorgeous voice and songs full of heartache and verve.
