Bio

Indie. Pop. Rock. A little bit of jazz & soul. You fuse all of these together and thats Bennie James & the Hesitant Few. Often compared to Paul McCartney, Ben Folds & The Fratellis, the band offers a diverse musical journey at every show. The boys from Wollongong are starting 2009 with a powerful push. Having supported The Whitlams early in the year, the band has recently released their debut EP, ‘Laugh!Jump!Cry!Love!’. The EP is available at their live shows, online, and at select stores. Bennie James & The Hesitant Few will be playing playing shows in Melbourne/Wollongong/Sydney in November with The Little Stevies, followed by some Bennie James solo shows in Western Australia in December. Come along and say hi!

This is a tops little pop song, full of hooks, group vocals (big tick for that one) and all contained in under 3 mins. Nice work guys!

Oh la la! Quelle chanson! C'est fantastique! A fabulous song written and performed by one of the most promising up and coming local bands. Ben, Ben, Jacob and Alex have an incredible energy and bucket loads of talent which shows piercingly through their music and even more so in their live performances. Bubbleboy, with its background chorus work is the kind of song that makes you want to open all the windows and doors, turn it up reeeeal loud and dance really ridiculously until you can't move anymore...or the neighbours call the police.
