"Ben Sures new record "Poema Poematis" is a charming song cycle filled with heart and wit and made all the more cohesive by some brilliant horn and string arrangements. Reminiscent of Van Dyke Parks "Discover America" but in it's own way”

Ron Sexsmith

I've never heard a record quite like it. It's like a folk album arranged by Charles Mingus, a singer-songwriter record orchestrated by Gil Evans...

And it works beautifully.

The rich, vibrant musical backdrop really allows Ben's thoughtful, heartfelt songs to shine with a brand-new lustre.
