Biography

The Eurasian son of a Malaysian Chinese father, and Scottish mother (Celtic singer Mae McKenna who also has Irish ancestry), he was born and raised in New Malden in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, Greater London, before his parents divorced.[2] He was educated at Sacred Heart RC Primary School (New Malden), S.T Catherines RC Middle School (Raynes Park) & Wimbledon College (Wimbledon). He later attended the BRIT School, where he graduated the year behind Amy Winehouse, whom he later supported live.[3][4]

Woon's sound and style is described as soul inflected vocals backed by samplers and programming, or a single guitar track. He describes his music as "... R&B, it's groove-based vocal-led music ..."[2]

On 4 January 2011, the BBC announced that Woon had been placed fourth in the BBC's Sound of 2011 poll.[3]

Woon's debut album is entitled Mirrorwriting and was released on 18 April 2011 via Polydor Records.[5]

On 1 May 2012, Woon announced that he had to cancel several upcoming shows due to an injury.[6] Since then, there had been a lull in his activities but in March 2015 he did a collaboration with Portico for their new album Living Fields to be released in April the same year.[7]

In August 2015 a new single, "Sharpness", was released. Benji B revealed in his show on 13 August that the new album would be called Making Time. It was subsequently released in September the same year.
