ACM drum graduate Ben Kennedy is currently playing with new Universal artist Clare Maguire – view her website – on a month long tour with Hurts and Plan B. Clare recently won a Q Award for ‘Next Biggest Thing’ and is definitely one to watch for next year.

Ben is set to play a ton of promo shows in November for The Album Chart Show and HMV too. He is also playing with Shayne Ward on this Sunday’s X-Factor promoting Shayne‘s new single ‘Gotta Be Somebody’. Ben is also looking forward to getting back out on tour with Ladyhawke in Australia this December; he said, “It’s been almost a year since I finished touring with her so really looking forward to that one!
