ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hailing from Christchurch ,New Zealand Ben Armistad has been crafting songs for the best part of twenty years. Armistad notes that an introduction to a large variety of music at a very young age almost certainly spelt the start of a curiosity and love of music. With both parents involved in commercial radio (a father who sent 35+years on the airwaves and a mother who worked initially at a rival station) it was only a matter of time before Armistad branched out and started exploring his own musical path. A mixture of acoustic pop-rock and alternative storytelling is where Armistad finds himself most at home with musical influences including the likes of Warren Zevon and Bruce Springsteen.

The Into the mines EP represents the debut works of Ben Armistad and offers an observational commentary on the universal themes of defiance and the erosion of society and its traditional pillars.
The EP would come under an alternative pop / rock genre with guitar and vocals being the most important elements in the mixes although sparse use of synths is used to offer the listener variety.
The focus for the listener should be towards the story and messages being told with the supporting musical framework complementing rather than overpowering the narrative.
