Ben Poole Humbled By Praise From Guitar Legends

(The Blues) Rising-star young bluesman Ben Poole is determined to ignore the distractions of media attention and remain focused on making good music.

The 25-year old has been receiving acclaim, not only from the press, but from big-name musicians including Richie Kotzen, Bernie Torme and Guthrie Govan.

"I try not to think about it, to be honest, and just do my thing," Poole tells Your Local Guardian. "I personally don't think my guitar playing is particularly virtuosic. I think what comes across is the passion and soulfulness of what I play and sing, rather than technical ability."

But he allows: "I can pull out some fast runs if needed. I try to play to the song, try not to overplay too much although as a guitar player I'm guilty of that sometimes." more on this story
