We chat with Ben Langford-Biss in lockdown via Zoom as he talks us through his debut solo record under the name Bleak Soul, entitled 'existential meditation'. Ben tells us about exploring new musical influences, the positive reaction to single 'why am i here?' and why he decided against presenting this new project under his own name. Plus, we take a look back on his farewell live tour with As It Is, the aptly titled 'Ben Today, Gone Tomorrow' tour. Finally, we look at what the future holds musically for Ben, with a covers EP among his current set of ideas.
