Bio

Hailing from the sunny shores of Wollongong NSW, multi-instrumentalist Ben Cauduro is Benjamino. Since his inception in late 2019, Benjamino has showcased his eclectic mix of soul, funk and indie pop with the release of his first two singles, To My Future Self and Big Things To Come. “the ruminating shimmers of Benjamino’s vibrance, shine on for you to feel, vibe, and caress” (Come Here Floyd). Taking inspiration from artists such as Rex Orange County, Father John Misty and Vulfpeck, his tracks have received community radio airplay and featured on international blogs. In early 2020 Benjamino also played his first live shows, presenting a captivating performance with his 7-piece band, opening for artists such as Fletcher Gull and Petiguana.

His new song, called Clutching at Shadows, will also be the first offering of his debut EP. Benjamino has created a head-bopping, stank face pulling track about unrequited friendship and determination for stronger self-worth. With his trademark mix of electronic synth textures and prominent horn lines floating over an incredibly funky rhythm section, Clutching at Shadows can be placed in-between the sounds of Nick Murphy (FKA Chet Faker) and Mark Ronson. Once again, Benjamino is about to make you tap your foot and think about life at the same time.

Love it when you hear an artist and within the first 20 seconds of the track you just know that they can ~play~. Benjamino is that kinda dude, who evidently lives behind a keyboard.
