Bio

A country boy hailing from North-West NSW, Benny Nelson knew from a young age that his small-town roots wouldn’t tame his big aspirations and at just 16 years of age, Benny moved to Sydney to pursue his career as a musician. In Sydney, he attended a Creative And Performing Arts High School.


After recording and releasing his debut EP ‘Follow Me’ in early 2017 that charted at 17 on the Album Pop Charts, Benny went on the road for 3 months with his 3-piece band to tour of the East Coast of Australia. The band played 27 shows in over 20 regional towns and cities from Cairns to Melbourne including a SOLD OUT show at The Spotted Cow, Toowoomba.

Benny is writing new music and focusing on recording his debut album.

TALK is a new direction and just a taste of what his debut album will offer.

it's emotional and vulnerable in parts but you've delivered it with a bravado and life that could move mountains.

This has track seems to have its own gravitational pull to it. It's burly and earnest rock that could very easily reach the rafters.

Lots of picturesque moments in this one. I agree with Tommy too. The deepness and richness in your voice make this really powerful. The songwriting is very strong too.
