Bio

Melbourne singer/songwriter Benjamin Trillado is known for his unapologetic candour and tear-jerking performances. Obsessed with the awkwardness of life and human error, Benjamin's lyrics can be painfully relatable as he sheds light on topics we tend to shy away from.

Growing up Benjamin listened to artists that ranged from Janis Ian to Beyoncè. His eclectic taste in music helped him shape a sound that borrows elements of folk, rock and soul.

From sharing the stage with many acclaimed artists like Ben Abraham to being mentored by song-writing powerhouses like Ainslie Wills, Benjamin has commanded stages all over Melbourne with his storytelling and powerful vocals.
