Minute Taker

  • The Chambers Waterside Arts 1 Waterside Plaza, Sale, Trafford (map)

Minute Taker, aka UK alternative singer-songwriter Ben McGarvey, has released two critically acclaimed albums Too Busy Framing (2008) and Last Things (2013) along with several EPs including his latest mini-album Reconstruction (2017).  

Inspired by imaginative artists such as Kate Bush, David Bowie, Tori Amos & Björk, Minute Taker uses layers of ethereal vocals, distorted beats, haunting piano motifs and fizzing synthesisers to create expressive, otherworldly songs that fuel the imagination.

He also composes for stage and film including dark stage musical HOAX My Lonely Heart (Manchester Royal Exchange Theatre, 2014 & UK tour, 2017) and To Love Somebody Melancholy, an audio-visual show in collaboration with animator Ana Stefaniak (UK tour, 2017).
