TURN on the radio and you might hear a song being sung by Ben Montague.

The singer-songwriter burst onto the scene in late 2010 with his debut single Can't Hold Me Down, and in truth has rarely left the airwaves since.

He will be stopping off at The Maze, in Nottingham, on September 21, as part of his first headline tour.

His first full-length album Overcome received high praise from radio stations up and down the country and Broken, his third single from the album, which similarly topped the Radio 2 'A List' for six weeks, went further than these shores by going on to be the winner's single in the Singapore version of the global Idol phenomenon.

Tales Of Flying And Falling, Ben's second studio album, was released in early 2013 and its achievements started where Overcome had left off.

It made the much sought-after BBC Radio 2 "Album of The Week", which Ben followed up with as a guest on the hugely popular "Tracks of My Years" with Ken Bruce.

Following the release of Tales Of Flying And Falling, Ben hit the road for a headline tour and festival appearances that included Isle of Wight and Cornbury, and added further to his resume by supporting the talented Amy Macdonald on her sell-out UK tour.
