Society of Sound artist opens this year’s BBC Proms

_MG_9827

Benjamin Grosvenor opened this year’s BBC Proms with an assured precision that belied his 19 years, making him the youngest ever performer to open these legendary concerts.

He is now signed to Decca and there is a new album scheduled for this month. He recorded his debut album, This and That, for Society of  Sound when he was just sixteen and we filmed this interview with him while he was at Real World Studios.
