Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, Benji Hughes spends much of his time masterminding his blend of inventive rock and ballads. At times earnest, at others whimsical. Underneath his thick mane of strawberry blond hair and beard is a versatile singer/songwriter, full of heart. His music collection -- spanning everything from The Crystals, Merle Haggard, and Kinky Friedman to Talking Heads, The Cars, and Slayer -- is as wild as his gracious exterior.
Benji's double-disc debut album, A Love Extreme, was produced by Keefus Ciancia (T-Bone Burnett, Sheryl Crow, Everlast, A Fine Frenzy, Kimbra) who assisted Hughes in making his 25-song debut album. A Love Extreme flows like your favorite mixtape but with the classicality of Randy Newman and Leonard Cohen. Benji has just recorded 3 new albums and we are looking to release later this year.
