Kent based Ben Mills shot to fame after coming third on series three of the X Factor in 2006. On first hearing Ben sing Simon Cowell said "it has been a long, long, long time since I have heard someone of your age sing an R & B classic like that!"
His success on this show resulted in a recording contract with Sony BMG and the subsequent release of his debut album, "Picture Of You", in March 2007 which sold over 130,000 copies.
In the years since, Ben has travelled the length and breadth of the country, Europe and the United States, appearing at a range of venues to rave reviews, securing himself a very strong following.
An accomplished musician, playing both the guitar and piano, Ben is also recognised as an extremely talented songwriter. His second album, "Freedom", showcases Ben's stunning new material, and includes collaborations with Mark Owen (Take That) and Paul Barry (James Morrison).
