An exclusive one-to-one with British singer Ben Davidson!
With one album already behind him as well a number of superb singles, British singer Ben Davidson is focussing on what comes next – he has a brand new single “Anything” coming out at the end of this month. So as we’ve been following Ben’s footsteps, we thought it was about time we called him up and said “do you fancy a chat?”. Ben thankfully agreed but if he was expecting the usual how are you? and how’s your career going? questions, he was sadly mistaken! So what does Ben remember and what would Ben like to forget?! Read on…
TAPM: You are giving us some great new music but who are your musical influences?
BD: I adore Mariah Carey and Kelly Clarkson they write and produce their own songs. I love that. Queen, Elton John George Michael so many.
TAPM: So What was the last song you listened to?
BD: All this Time – Michelle McManus we’re performing together tonight lol
If you don’t remember Michelle, here she is…
TAPM: We love “The Chain” – tell us more about it…
BD: I heard the demo of “The Chain” and I loved the melody instantly I recorded it and sent my notes and turned the song into a real pop classic. It’s an AMAZING debut. I was so lucky. It’s from the writers of “Rise Like A Phoenix”!! Totally blown away at the success of it!
TAPM: What about Eurovision – would you ever get involved?
BD: No. I love Eurovision but it’s tainted and not about the song or artist for the UK now. It’s a shame as I’d rock it.
TAPM: We love knowing what the number one song in the charts was when people were born – what was yours?
BD: “Maneater” Hall and Oats 10th July 1983.
TAPM: Very precise Ben! So, tell us something embarrassing about yourself…
BD: I have walked on stage and fallen flat on my face.
TAPM: WOW! What’s your favourite song lyric from one of your songs and why?
BD: “No one knows me like you, you give me reason to keep believing” – because that kind of feeling and love is so rare makes me hopeful to find that one.
TAPM: And your favourite songs lyric ever?
“I’d give my all for one more night with you. Because we always want that”.
TAPM: Who is the Queen of pop?
BD: Mariah Carey
TAPM: and who is the King of pop?
BD: Michael Jackson
TAPM: So, what’s the plan for the rest of this year?
BD: Write, write, write! And record songs people relate to.
TAPM: And we can’t wait Ben!
