This week FV caught up with Guy Dagul (front man for 'Sons of Ben') and had a chat about what he’s been working on since completing his latest album
'A Week In L.A.'
FV: It’s been a busy year for you so far what other projects have you been involved with that you share with us?
GD: An interesting year already. Having finished our latest album "A Week In L.A.", I managed to squeeze in scoring for the BBC Film "Teresa v Boris" before putting the final touches to the audio commentary and music for a soon-to-be-revealed London Sightseeing Experience! I recently also put my Music Editor hat on for a forthcoming feature film, "Tomorrow".
FV: Calista Kazukois riding high right now, you produced her recent EP 'Love Me’. I read in one of her interviews that she 'badgered' you to work with her until you agreed! How much input do you have working with an artist like Calista?
GD: Calista sought me out a few years back, while I was at a particularly low ebb, creatively. I'd heard a lot about her through the industry and friends. She has extraordinary musicianship and energy and I was initially reluctant to confront and work with her. Thankfully she persuaded me to exit my slumber and we then embarked upon a wonderful collusion of musical ideas, mostly left-field (she doesn't do conformity!) She exudes passion and comedy in her work and has the ambition to go all the way!
FV: Thanks Guy.
'Sons of Ben' will be releasing a single from 'A Week In L.A.' later this year.
