Benjamin Clementine

From Upbeat, 1:42 pm on 15 March 2016

The story of pianist and singer Benjamin Clementine is a classic rags to riches tale about a young man who was so destitute he busked on the streets of Paris for three years before an appearance on a television show changed his life. As Benjamin tells Trevor Reekie the only trouble is people are so interested in his poverty stricken background he's worried his story will overshadow his music.
