Esser is the surname and artist name of musician Ben Esser. His debut album 'Braveface' was released in the UK on 21 March 2009 and on 11 August in the US.
Mojo 8/10 In short, this is exceptionally good contemporary pop. [Jun 2009, p. 109]
Urb 8/10 So who cares if Esser is clearly a product of his environment, right down to the post-Millennial Morrisey pompadour. Put him in line with several decades of British music that will always satisfy the NME reader within.
Q Magazine 6/10 He's not quite established his own sound, but that will surely come. Meanwhile, Braveface remains hugely enjoyable. [Jun 2009, p. 121]
The Guardian 6/10 Though it can sometimes feel as if Esser is randomly pushing buttons to make the strangest noises he can, Braveface is a satisfying 35 minutes.
He is currently working on a new album which is scheduled for release in 2012
