PAST EVENT - Benny Walker

  • Blues

Yorta Yorta singer/songwriter Benny Walker is the real deal. He's got the lot; the voice, the songs, the showmanship and the looks to kill. His love songs and epic tales are mixed with passion for people, the land, summer vibes and deep grooves that reach the soul. Said to possess one of the best voices in Australia, Benny Walker never fails to take you on an emotionally driven sonic journey. In recent years Benny has played some of the country’s favourite festivals including Woodford, Festival of King Island, Deni Rhythm, Blues and Jazz, Blue Mountains, St Kilda Festival and Byron BluesFest in 2018 & 2019. He has performed alongside some of Australia’s finest, including Archie Roach, Alex Lloyd, Baker Boy, Blue King Brown, Mo'Ju and Tim Rogers.

A killer voice, with killer looks Benny mixes Blues n Roots with a contemporary guitar driven soul vibe. Benny Walker's killer track I Don’t Blame You was the first track released from his latest album Chosen Line [produced by Jan Skubiszewski ]. The track debuted at No.1 on the iTunes Blues chart and was followed up with the equally successful blues banga All Ya Gotta Do Is Call.  CHOSEN LINE  features collaborations with songwriters Joel Quartermain [Eskimo Joe], George Carpenter, Alex Henriksson [Matt Corby] as well as ongoing songwriting with ARIA winners Pip Norman and Jan Skubiszewski. In August 2021 CHOSEN LINE received a NIMA nomination for "Best Album of the Year 2021".
