Bio

Bennie James of Sydney's Inner West fuses folk with pop to create catchy melodies & memorable moments. In the past few years, Bennie has opened for artists such as The Whitlams, Paul Greene, Brendan Maclean, Andy Bull, Skipping Girl Vinegar & Ernest Ellis in both a solo format and with band The Hesitant Few. 2011 saw Bennie and the new band team up with producer Paul McKercher (Augie March/Sarah Blasko/You Am I) to create two new tracks: the folky builder ‘Listen Closely’ & the kitsch indie love song, ‘Please Mend Me.’ The songs have been played on Triple J, ABC Illawarra and FBi Radio. Catch Bennie at The Workers Club in Fitzroy (VIC) on 7th February or at the Newsagency in Marrickville (NSW) on 23rd February!

Great song. Love the uke and the toy piano adds the that touch of fragility. The lyrics are from the heart and the vocals are fantastic.
