Ben Mills Signed to Five Album Record Deal

Filed under: 2006 Contestants, Ben

X Factor contestant Ben Mills has signed a five-album deal with record label Sony BMG. Mills was voted off the X Factor in the show’s semi-finals, with judges comparing him to a young Joe Cocker.

Ben is now preparing to release his debut album in March, which will contain a mixture of his own material and songs from the X Factor.

Ben said: “The X Factor was the perfect platform to gain recognition and I’m really enjoying writing and recording this album”

  3. Saw Ben perform a suprise gig in a small local pub in Whitstable this New years eve-he was absolutely fantastic-his voice minus amplification in the venue was incredibly powerful.He chatted to locals and was charming and genuinely thankful to those congratulating him after.I wish him every success with his record deal.
