Take a Walk with Benny

With a Victorian Indigenous Performing Arts Award under his belt (Best New Talent – 2012), songman Benny Walker has become a favourite voice within the blues, roots and folk scene. His sophomore album, Sinners and Saints, showed us that, reaching #1 within a day on the Australian Blues/Roots Airplay Charts. It also made the #3 spot on Unpaved’s 50 Best Albums of 2013: “… Walker’s intimate, eloquent songwriting is complemented by a rich, soulful voice which speaks of the trouble, strife and wonder of everyday life.” It should make the news of his third album, titled Through the Forest, all the more exciting. Head on down to Sutton’s House of Music, Ballarat on April 18 for some fresh tunes.
