Ben Leece’s debut record No Wonder the World Is Exhausted is a songbook of deceptive depth and emotional scope.
Leece spreads his wings as a deft and poetic lyricist of eagle eye and forked tongue, wry and perceptive in equal measure. Engineered, produced and mixed by prominent singer-songwriter and ARIA award-winner Shane Nicholson, the album explores political protest, social conscience and personal reflection.
‘It all amounts to an impressive debut built on economical and emotive song-writing and delivered via one hell of a voice.’ - The Music
‘Tempting to just leave on repeat, it’s such an engaging sound. Applause for Antipodean Americana’ – Americana UK
"The world may be exhausted, but Ben Leece might just have the tonic." - Country Update Magazine
"Classic country sounds with dashes of rockin' power pop and fuzz guitars, all coming together to create an impressive release. This is a whole lot of real true talent." - Stack Magazine (JB Hi-Fi)
Album of the week – The Age
No Wonder the World is Exhausted is bound to continue Leece’s organic rise through the ranks of Australian music, following on from the debut 7” single ‘Trace’ in 2017, which snagged him “Alt-Country Song of the Year” at the 16th annual Independent Music Awards. Leece was soon also in the Top 15 finalists in the Americana Music Prize of Australia. Expect many more accolades to follow. Because the world may be exhausted, but it’s about to wake up to Ben Leece.
