Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ben McKelvey grew up in West London on a musical diet of classic songwriters like Springsteen, Dylan, Cash and Joe Strummer. He formed pop-punk group Fluid Lines as a teenager, going on to record and tour the UK with them.  After a series of successful tours and radio exposure, the group went their separate ways in 2011.
