After a stream of successes in 2016 for singles “Oh No You Don’t” and “Save” which landed him the gong for Best Aboriginal Act of the Year at the Age Music Victoria Awards, Yorta Yorta singer/songwriter BENNY WALKER is coming to MEMO Music Hall to perform songs from his latest EP Undercover.
Capturing hearts with darker tracks reflecting a shadowy side such as those on album Through the Forest through to upbeat songs such as “Summer Sun”, Benny’s killer voice and songwriting talents have impressed audiences far & wide. Nominated for 4 NIMA awards in 2016: New Talent of the Year, Best Song, Best Cover Art and Best Film Clip for “Oh No You Don’t”, a song that shot to No.1 on the AMRAP chart was soon followed by another No.1 with the heart wrenching single “Save”. Both songs were the beginnings of a new direction for Benny and were produced by (ARIA Award winning) Jan Skubiszewski.
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 and St Kilda Festival.
A killer voice with killer looks, Benny mixes Blues n Roots with a contemporary guitar driven soul vibe.
BENNY WALKER is a star in the making and has performed alongside some of Australia’s finest, including Archie Roach, Alex Lloyd, Blue King Brown and Tim Rogers.
An accomplished solo performer, Benny is regularly joined on stage by his band, where he replaces his acoustic guitar with a Telecaster and indulges his passion for a big blues-rock sound.
BENNY WALKER is the real deal. His love songs and epic tales are mixed with passion for people, the land, summer vibes and deep grooves that reach the soul. Join in this intimate setting and see for yourself!
