Ben Cottrill’s Spice-Box tinged with folk and rock

An Abbotsford singer-songwriter recently released his second EP.

Ben Cottrill’s early single Give Me Thunder garnered more than 100,000 combined views and streams within a few weeks of its release.

The EP, Spice-Box, is a collection of folk- and rock-tinged songs revolving around experiences travelling North America and Europe, searching for relief from heartbreak and seeking a personal freedom.

The official album launch party was held in early July at Field House Brewing in Abbotsford.

Cottrill was named among seven winners – selected from 300 submissions – of the Emerging Artist Music Mentorship Program in 2015.

He also earned a Fraser Valley Music Award nomination in 2017.

Since then, he has kept busy performing constantly around B.C. and Ontario and recording new music.

His recent performances include at the Jam in Jubilee concert series on Aug. 2 at Jubilee Park in Abbotsford.

Cottrill, who plays multiple instruments, says he is continuing to tour throughout the summer in support of his new release.

“I have to say I’ve been fortunate so far, and I’m really looking forward to what this next year brings,” he said.
