I’ve followed the career of Sir Ben Marx for nearly 10 years and his creativity never ceases to amaze me. His single “So Not You” dropped at the top of the year. I caught up with this prolific artist in Berlin.

Traveling and exploring the world has always been at the core of my career. This time I got my booty on a plane and flew from LA to Berlin. The city has always intrigued me, the culture, the fashion, the music. The nightlife is really wild and inspiring, I would go out at night to decompress then record the next day. — Sir Ben Marx

I needed to ‘culture shock’ myself back into creating music following a hiatus after I lost my mother. She was a huge part of my life and drive and I took a year off to mourn and reflect on my life, where I wanted to be. The loss of a parent is something you never really get over but knowing how much she believed in my music and me as an artist has fueled my drive beyond words. — Sir Ben Marx

Sir Ben Marx is currently working on three new albums, all with very different styles. You can keep up-to-date by following him on Instagram @7sir7. You can download the single So Not You on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk
