Having excelled as a classical pianist, Ben Ridley has re-emerged as a student of classic pop. Taking cues from Todd Rundgren and Randy Newman, the Brighton-based balladeer has merged his nuanced classical training with the tropes of timeless songwriting to produce new single Dancing Mood. The track is lifted from his forthcoming album, Sing, which is due for release in Spring this year. Though the album is designed to be experienced as a whole, ‘Dancing Mood’ is the ultimate introduction to this new chapter in Ridley’s musical journey.
