Bio

Born Benjamin Morrell, the 20-something Melbourne native has established himself through the combination of a sharp flow and reflective bars, continuing to break the shackles of the generic hip hop sound. Benny credits household influences such as The Rolling Stones and Fleetwood from a tender age, transcending through adolescence in the sounds of 90s kings Gang Starr, Big Pun & A Tribe Called Quest. Benny’s Live performance is high octane and full of stage presence, first being on stage at just 6 years old. This evolved to selling out his interactive shows and playing festivals at 20 years old. Through his growth he’s followed his passion and obsessed over his craft to continue to create a catalogue that is uniquely, Benny Morrell. It’s the obsession of his craft that continues to develop an extensive catalogue for the young songwriter, continuing to take a broad palette of influences from artists such as Anderson Paak, Curtis Mayfield and Paul Simon. Benny’s debut single ’Sidepiece’ creates a sound that pays homage to his influences and allows his charismatic personality to flourish.

Butter! Right on that Mac / .Paak vibe but Benny's making it all his own.
