‘Shoulder’ (release date 1st April 2022) is the debut release from South London based vocal duo ‘Ben and Dom’. This collection of 6 original songs has grown out of their close friendship, a shared love of harmony singing and a common desire to explore the themes of male identity and expression through their songwriting. Ben takes the high notes, and Dom the low notes, as the intricate blend of their voices weave around the harmonies. Their lyrics touch on friendship, mental struggle, the idea of male beauty, and aim to challenge the stereotypes of what it means for two men to sing together in this modern day.

Saturday July 9th
Join us for an afternoon of walking & singing.
We’ve found a lovely spot just south of London ideal for stretching those legs and throwing our voices into the wind.
We’ll climb a hill, get lost in the woods and sing songs along the way. This round trip will take us into nature and bring us together in song.
We don’t want finances to be a barrier to taking part, please get in touch if you need an alternative arrangement.
Meet: Coulsdon South (national rail) 1.45pm (we leave at 2pm prompt)
Return: We aim to be back at Coulsdon South by 6.30pm
Route: We will be walking ~6km including some ups and downs. We will move at a sensible pace and stop along the way to sing, rest & take in the surroundings. This walk is an intermediate level of difficulty, if you have any questions about the route/terrain then please get in touch.
Bring: Come prepared for the weather, including suitable footwear, coat, water & snacks.
There will be a toilet stop on the way / way back
We’d like this to be an adventure so we don’t want to give too much away, however if you have any concerns or queries please feel free to contact us for more information.
