Ben King is the main songwriter in the ARIA nominated band – Expatriate. The band has just returned from living in Berlin for the last three years during which time they released their first record and toured extensively throughout the continent. Touring included playing just about every major European summer festival, supporting Placebo on a twenty-six date arena tour and playing their own sold out club dates from Athens to Paris to Berlin.
Ben, who is signed to EMI Publishing Australia, is currently completing work on a solo project and is also working with numerous other writers based in Australia and Europe. Writing for other artists is a field he wishes to explore further:
“I feel really lucky to be able to meet a lot of other song writers and to have the opportunity to work collaboratively with them. Writing for the sake of just writing a song (as opposed to having to think about whether it fits a certain project) is incredibly satisfying and liberating.”
Expatriate are releasing their second full-length album in July entitled Hyper Hearts and their latest single, Do You Remember is winning over listeners everywhere.
