Bio

BANFF (Benjamin Forbes) announces the release of ‘Light On Me’, his second single for 2019 which marks a new creative expansion for the Brisbane-based artist. It follows BANFF’s journey as he breaks through a thick fog of writer’s block through the practice of everyday awareness, walking through through the hills of his hometown and finding a renewed pleasure in solitude. “Throughout this writing process, I would frequent a local mountain walking track with my dog Scout. We'd spend a lot of time up that mountain taking in our days,” says Forbes. “After months of doubt and hesitation, I sat on a fallen tree branch and felt a warm wave of light roll over me. Things were looking up. I had a renewed outlook on this journey and the ideas started flowing.” ‘Light On Me’ follows recent single ‘Pettigrew Pt 1’ and is another slice from a new batch of music for BANFF - the result of BANFF’s personal struggle with creative self-doubt, as he focused in on the moment to help release the pressure he was placing on himself. It’s a lesson that’s telling for our times, as Forbes resisted the temptation to throw in the towel. “As time passed, I released the old expectations,” he explains, “I became more mindful and honest, and the songs started flowing.”

Lyrics about standing at the top of a mountain, sonically sounds like standing at the top of a mountain. That's the BANFF experience.
