British singer-songwriter/producer Ben McGarvey, known as Minute Taker, makes what NOTION describes as "beautiful electronic-orientated pop songs" with "haunting melodies, electronic beats & soulful singing" (TIME OUT). 

 

From his small home studio on the Pennine moors, surrounded by synthesisers, gadgets and pets, he crafts his emotive, nostalgic songs.

 

Along with releasing 3 acclaimed albums, several EPs & official remixes for Yazoo & Erasure, Minute Taker has gained a reputation for his inventive cover versions of classic songs by some of his favourite artists including Kate Bush, Eurythmics, Madonna, Tori Amos & Pet Shop Boys.  Many of these were recorded exclusively for Secret Songs, a series of homemade albums available for fans via subscription.  Find out more about Secret Songs here.

 

Minute Taker's new 80s-inspired synth-pop album Wolf Hours includes the singles "The Darkest Summer", "Lead You Home" and "After The Rain" (featuring Bright Light Bright Light) which has received airplay on BBC Radio 2.

 

Wolf Hours is available now in digital stores.  CDs, Download Packs and exclusive merchandise available from the MT shop here
