Bio

Benny Taylor here, ive been writing songs and recording them from my bedroom/studio using cheap equipment. The results are less than perfect but the songs i have posted reflect my range of styles from blues to indie or folk even. I reside in Newcastle but have roots in country NSW. Some of this can be reflected in my country style fingerpicking in some songs. I have always been a stickler for the old style music and would much prefer to listen to a dodgy bootlegged live recording than a crisp over produced soulless one. This means when recording my own music i have little patience and take on the "near enough is good enough" and besides id rather leave the production in the hands of the producer. I would like to utilise unearthed in any way possible, and just knowing that others are listening to my music is a real kick.
