BENNY WALKER - I DON'T BLAME YOU


Hailing from Echuca in Victoria, Yorta Yorta singer/songwriter Benny Walker is the real deal. His love songs and epic tales are mixed with emotion and passion for the land, the people, summer vibes and deep grooves that reach the soul.
Said to have one of the best voices in Australia Benny Walker has the drag and timbre of a natural soul man. His music is pure blues-rock, buoyed by clean, lyrical guitar solos and the throb of electric organ.

The first offering from his EP due in June is I Don't Blame You.

 

I Don’t Blame You is pure Blues-rock, buoyed by clean, gutsy lyrical guitar solos and the throb of electric organ; Benny Walker’s new track is a must have on your playlist.
Think vintage instruments and recording gear, add production by ARIA award winner Pip Norman and the end result is a perfect balance of warm tones, punchy musicality and a mix that cuts through.

“From the moment we stepped into the studio, I had a really clear idea of how I wanted “I Don’t Blame You” to sound. Pip (Norman) and I had referenced a few records that we really loved from a sonic stand point, Namely Alabama Shakes “Sound and Colour” album as well as keeping in mind some of the great recordings of the past, such as the Rolling Stones. Our approach was to use vintage instruments and recording gear, get the band in a room together and capture a great take and then add Pip’s production elements later.” Says Benny. 

I Don't Blame You is out now.
