The Music Turn To Love
I am a lover of progressive sounds, without neglecting the classics: Johann Sebastian Bach and his enigmatic Counter-Reformation, Mozart and his divine Sonatas. I am inspired by greats like Clapton and Gilmour…and Jimi Hendrix who were all masters in their own right!
On stage, the music is about me relaying my emotions through every note I play. The audience becomes part of what I’m saying; they feel it as much as I do…the unspoken language between us.
It’s very much about communicating that inner joy, which is the root of good music.

“What I want when we make a record is to get the sense of being in a group where any member could say anything and it would be right…” – Keith Jarrett
Live At The Royal Albert Hall
In November 2011 Benjamin performed two acoustic shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall in support of the 10th anniversary of Red Hot Organization. The event was a charitable benefit supporting the fight against AIDS, inspired by the life and work of artist Robert Mapplethorpe.
