Benjamin Francis Leftwich - "Ticket To Ride" + Tour Dates

It's official, Benjamin Francis Leftwich is on tour. We hinted at this in our feature on him a couple months ago, and it's finally come to fruition. He's going to be headlining shows across the states, Canada and the UK -- and to celebrate it all he's kicking things off with a new track. "Ticket To Ride" (a cover of The Beatles) takes the original track's timeless sound and warps it with Ben's trademark airy voice and acoustic guitar. It's a delightful tune that doesn't stray far from the track's original composition, seemingly paying homage to The Beatles' reign of perfection.
