Smoke in my lungs, or the echoed stone
Careless and young, free as the birds that fly
With weightless souls now.
Benjamin John Howard (born April 24, 1987)

Black Flies, Ben Howard

Hello love, my invincible friend,
Hello, love, the thistle and the burr.
Hello, love, for you I have so many words,
That I forget where we were.
BEN: It’s quite a privilege to actually go around, play music and have so many people go to the shows. To be able to share that with people, it’s a bizarre thing; you write on your own and then you share it with people every night. The fame side for me is funny because it’s really nice and really positive in many ways. It’s really nice to get recognized by people and I think we all live our lives in the eyes of other people to such a huge extent anyway, all of us do. But it’s funny that people recognize you quite a lot for what you do.
INTERVIEWER: You still want to keep your privacy.
BEN :Yeah! It’s a funny one, I’m not big into it but I see it as a by-product to being able to do what we love so much and I wouldn’t change it for the world. It’s amazing! We get to travel around the whole world and you meet friends all the time. You meet people who think they know you and even if they don’t, they come to you with such a positive energy and it’s really amazing to have that all over the world.
INTERVIEWER : Now, I’m going to ask you my last question which is to draw something that represents you.
BEN: I came from the city, lived in the country and it was always close to me. The sea, cups are always half full, family, Saint-Christopher who is the Saint of Travel and an airplane heading somewhere I don’t know. There you go, that’s all I got!
