About Benny Sings

Benny Sings is a Dutch artist who’s been performing, producing and releasing records for over a decade. Debut album Champagne People (2003) made an immediate impact, garnering positive press and earning Benny the 2004 Essent Award. Sophomore effort I Love You (2005) unleashed worldwide acclaim for Benny, as BBC DJ Gilles Peterson became a fan, while single “Little Donna” was a hit on France’s Radio Nova. Third album Benny…At Home (2007) spread his appeal further, getting positive reviews in the US and Japan. Follow-up ART increased Benny’s recognition in America, which was bolstered a year later by a subsequent greatest hits compilation, 2012’s Best of Benny Sings, which led to an opening slot on Mayer Hawthorne’s European tour and a phenomenal amount of international radio airplay, including BBC Radio 1 (Gilles Peterson), BBC Radio 2 (Jamie Cullum), KCRW Los Angeles (Anthony Valadez) and Studio Brussel (Lefto). Benny’s most recent effort, 2015’s STUDIO, has earned him the best reviews of his career; Dutch music magazine Volkskrant called it the “highlight of his oeuvre” in a four-star review, while hailed STUDIO as the “best album of his career to date” and the Huffington Post deemed Benny “the best artist you never heard of.”
