Benjamin Clementine

Sage One

The critically acclaimed debut album by 26 year-old singer/songwriter Benjamin Clementine won the Mercury Music Prize 2015 ‘Album of the Year’. The judging panel described Clementine as “a remarkable new pianist and singer – dramatic, intimate and pulsatingly original”.

At Least For Now has been described as:

A remarkable, beyond-categorisation debut album – genuinely heart-wrenching Sunday Times

A masterpiece Independent On Sunday

The album led to Clementine selling out five headline shows in London and overseas. Clementine has received “Best New Act” honours at Les Victoires de la Musique, the French equivalent of the Grammys and performed sold-out shows across Europe and the US.

Clementine has packed a lot into his 26 years: heartbreak, homelessness, reinvention, before reaching cult status in Paris and returning home in unlikely circumstances to make his UK live debut on Later…With Jools Holland, since described by the BBC as “one of the greatest Jools moments of any era.”
