ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With the release of his debut solo EP “Nowhere To But Up,” Ben Willmott, recognized as having a rich soothing voice, rockin’ piano riffs, and songs we can all relate to, is impressing listeners everywhere.

The Bentley College Vanguard says that “when these songs start playing thousands of times a day on the radio, you'll want to be the one to tell your friends you knew him first.” ADDReviews.com proclaims that Willmott’s release is filled with “Tasty piano driven rock reminiscent of Elton John or Ben Folds. This is an excellent debut effort.” While music journalist, Kelly O’Neil states, “Though still under the radar, Willmott has amazing potential as the next American troubadour.”

The six songs featured on “Nowhere To Go But Up” are meaningful piano based tunes that encompass the pop, rock, folk, and classical music styles that Willmott grew up listening to and studying.

By The Way Music, Ben’s production company, is so confident that you will be thrilled with this disc, that they are offering a THIRTY DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase. No questions asked.

The most recent review of Ben's debut:

On his six-track debut album Nowhere To Go But Up, it's clear that Ben Willmott won't hold anything back, knowing full well what the audience likes (and doesn't). "I don't want to bore with something that's been done before," he sings on his song-philosophy track "Recipe." "I know I could do that even if I don't know why."

What can be described as a piano pop-rock joyride, Nowhere To Go But Up wants to be the soundtrack to life ... not just yours, but everyone else's. There's this undeniable James Taylor deja vu that rears its head as Willmott vocally channels the legend with the same kind of subtle, yet effective sound. "Recipe" is the star track with its melodic quirkiness and it's followed by the lovely "Sweet Vineyard Days." The organ on "Having You" gives it a transcendent feel, a heavenly declaration of love which echoes the kind of sweetness last seen on Elton John's "Your Song." Willmott's love songs are ones that can master even the greatest wordsmiths-- he uses every metaphor possible in this song, but finds that going simple can be the best bet. Closing out with "You Get Rid Of The Bad", Willmott ends with this heartfelt piano ballad and you'll swear you've just witnessed the next generation of the singer-songwriter being born.

Clearly a great debut, Ben Willmott shows that he's got the musical chops with his likable infectious pop ballads and quips about life. The arrangements and lyrics are the kind to inspire you, both noticeably melding together effortlessly. With the help of Scott Manley on drums and Nate Christy on bass and guitar, things are rounded out beautifully on this musical journey of life, love, and happiness.

Five out of five stars.

Buy this album. You'll love it!
Ben's has taken four old favorites and two brand-new songs back into the studio and beautifully produced them with a full band to compliment his own considerable talents. His luscious voice and incredible piano chops bring to life his wonderful songs. Anyone who has one of Ben's first two solo albums has been waiting with bated breath to hear how his full band album would sound. Not only was it worth the wait, it is worth every penny. If you're a Ben Willmott fan, be sure to add this album to your collection. If you've yet to discover Ben's music, get this album. You'll love it.

Holy Cow!
Great music, Ben! We've really enjoyed listening to the new CD. My favorite is the last track, but every other one is teriffic as well. Ben is a great songwriter with an uncanny ability to turn everyday experiences into catchy tunes. You should get this CD too!
