Whilst performing on London’s live circuit, Cox attracted the attention of UK jazz vocal legend Ian Shaw, who recognised his huge potential, establishing a role as a mentor and producing his album, enhancing what was already a great new talent. The result is This Waiting Game, an exceptional album with an inclusive vibe, destined to by enjoyed by both the avid jazz fan and those who simply love to be entertained by great music. Guest slots from renowned jazz talent such as Kirk McElhinney, Claire Martin and Emily Dankworth also serve to augment what is already an enchanting and charismatic body of work.  

Cox’s mesmerising tone and captivating delivery have won him a whole host of high profile fans, including a glowing endorsement from jazz superstar Jamie Cullum. Introducing This Waiting Game as “fresh new vocal jazz music” on his hugely popular BBC Radio 2 show, Cullum states: “The title track ‘This Waiting Game’ sounds really good, Ben has got a very precise voice, it recalls a little bit of Kurt Elling to me, certainly in the writing style of the music and I’m looking forward to hearing the rest of the album”

"Ben Cox possesses a voice drenched in soul and swing, that sounds like nobody else. He is a cracking songwriter and collaborator, A true talent" – Ian Shaw

“Ben Cox owns a stunning capacity to live through each song with a rich tone and beautifully honest heart. Jamie Safiruddin plays with such an exciting and generous style. . I think we may have found the best new jazz talent to emerge from the UK. Highly recommended” – Liane Carroll
