One of the hardest music biz markets to crack is the singer-songwriter gig. It's difficult for a number of reasons-singer-songwriters are of necessity limited by instrumentation, and there's been so much repetition in this narrow field that it's difficult to sound fresh. Often, singer-songwriters have to find a balance between gloomy introspection for depth and poppy melodies for light relief. For most of "Spoonface", his recent solo outing, Ben Christophers gets this balance just right.
T here is something birdlike about Ben Christophers, a little of the nervous Dickensian clerk, and something quite other that the word "elfin" only begins to express. He's both steely and fragile. Since , he has made three albums that pick up the baton for a strand of eccentric, elegant English pop that leads from Roxy Music and Robert Wyatt to David Sylvian, the Cocteau Twins and Talk Talk, while also seeming utterly alien. Blessed with an extraordinary voice, he is often spuriously compared to Jeff Buckley, with whom he has little in common.
