The winner of this year’s Mercury Prize, charismatic young singing poet Benjamin Clementine hails from Edmonton Green but was discovered while singing on the Paris Metro, giving him a chance to spread his heartfelt blues and deep soul vocals further afield. A self-taught pianist and eccentric but deeply affecting singer-songwriter, he has something that’s often spoken of but rarely witnessed: raw talent.
