This is part two of the 'my influences you've never heard of' series. For part 1 click here.

This is my most recent big influence. The brainchild of Ben Sharp, who writes and records everything himself, Cloudkicker has grown to be fairly famous among prog musicians entirely through word of mouth. Ben is excellent at knowing when to repeat and layer sections, and when to bring in changes, and I've learned a lot about using interesting time signatures unobtrusively from listening to his work. Most of his pieces are quite heavy, but he has some beautiful, relaxed tunes as well - Let Yourself Be Huge is one I'd recommend for those who dislike distortion.
