Leeds-based songwriter and producer Spielmann has just unveiled his latest single, titled 'The Seventh Time,' showcasing his undeniable talent and setting the stage for an exciting series of festival performances. As the solo project of West Yorkshire's own Ben Lewis, Spielmann is gearing up for a remarkable lineup of festival dates, including highly acclaimed events like Green Man, Bluedot, The Great Escape, Dot To Dot, and more.

'The Seventh Time' is a testament to Spielmann's love for sing-along anthems, infectious melodies, and irresistible hooks. The track combines vibrant synths, captivating drum machines, and emotionally charged lyrics that weave a conversation between two friends. It explores themes of self-discovery, intervention, and ultimately finding comfort in one's true self. Spielmann explains, "Whether the intervention is a successful one or not remains to be seen."

After years of involvement in various Leeds-based projects, such as Ruthie, Menace Beach, and Bruising, Spielmann emerged as a solo artist in late 2022. Originally planning a gradual introduction, he quickly found himself opening for old friends Yard Act at a sold-out Leeds O2 Academy, propelling his journey forward.

Described as a blend of Jack Antonoff producing The War On Drugs or a version of Phoenix rooted in heartland Americana, Spielmann's approach to modern pop intertwined with alternative music is meticulously crafted. His music is both expansive and intimate, with a playful edge and stadium-ready choruses that linger in the listener's mind for days. The Revue fittingly described Spielmann's sound as "if Adam Granduciel teamed up with Future Islands..."

With plans to release more music and embark on a series of tours throughout 2023, Spielmann is poised to make a lasting impression on the music scene. His unique blend of influences, thoughtful songwriting, and captivating performances promise an exhilarating journey for fans and new listeners alike. Keep an eye out for Spielmann's upcoming releases and live shows as he continues to make his mark in the music industry.
