“The biggest downfall of pop music..like a lot of the stuff they play on the radio and things..its not that its bad musically..and you can’t discredit pop music, but the one thing it doesn’t touch on, is the heart and soul and passion. The big difference between good and bad music for me, is whether someone believes in what they’re playing, because there are so many people that don’t really believe in what they’re playing, and for me, that just seems like a wasted cause. I don’t understand why people would do that.” - Ben Howard
“I don’t think my music qualifies as any sort of life lesson or holy message. Music is about memories and something that you can physically attach to so many different times in your life. I’d love to leave people with music that they hold close. If they appreciate the songs, that’s more than enough for me.”
— Ben Howard on "What message would you like to leave the world with your music?"
Greg James: So tonight you’re doing a song, any other things you gotta do?
Ben Howard: Just a song. I’ve got to sit at the table and look smart, I’ve got a real nice shirt on and I’ve just got to behave myself. I’ve been told not to drink much and behave. So I feel like a child to be honest, like a kid looking out on this spectacle going ‘whooooa’
