Benjamin Clementine is an English artist, poet, vocalist, composer, and musician.

Born and raised in London, England, Clementine later moved to Paris, France becoming homeless as a teenager. There, his performances helped him to become a cult figure in the music and art scene. Moving back to London, he made his TV debut on the BBC programme Later With Jools Holland in 2013. A number of critics described him as becoming one of the great singer-songwriters of his generation and the future sound of London, whilst struggling to place his music in any one genre.

Clementine’s debut album At Least for Now won the 2015 Mercury Prize but fared better across mainland Europe. At the end of 2015, Clementine was included in The Guardian’s New Year’s honours list to celebrate heroes of 2015. Debrett’s and the London Evening Standard named him one of the most influential people in Britain. – Wikipedia
