Since the project began in 2008, Ben has drawn on an eclectic range of influences such as Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, Dallas Green, Damien Rice, Angus Stone and John Mayer. Always aspiring to create the music he loves, he counts himself lucky to now be winning the hearts of fans the world over.

Shit, imagine if you someone wrote a song about you and described you as their "moonlight". We should all be so lucky.

The pop production on this track is decadent as heck. Great build, great melody.
