On any given day you might find Minute Taker, aka English singer-songwriter & producer Ben McGarvey, wandering the windy moors near his house on the Pennine moors.  
 
Inspired by alternative singer-songwriters like Kate Bush, Tori Amos, David Bowie & Björk, along with Alfred Hitchcock films & all things mysterious & otherworldly, Minute Taker has been capturing the imagination of fans all around the world.
Described by NOTION as "beautiful electronic-orientated pop songs” & THE GUARDIAN as “epic, otherworldly sounds”, his unique blend of emotive vocals, haunting piano motifs, distorted electronic beats & ethereal synths conjure up strange & inviting other worlds, perfect for escaping into.
His recent official remixes for Yazoo & Erasure along with his cover versions of Pet Shop Boys, The Smiths & Eurythmics have hinted at the direction of his forthcoming album 'WOLF HOURS'...
“Growing up in the 80s I always felt such a connection to the music of the decade. I wanted to make a modern 80s album that creates that sense of magic & warm nostalgia, like a trip back through time to your childhood home”.
