About Benny Sings 

Benny Sings is a prolific songwriter, producer and artist from Amsterdam. Benny has made his name over a decade-plus career as a singer, songwriter and producer, most recently with the the critically acclaimed ‘Music’, released in 2021 on Stones Throw Records. The album ’Music’  includes the singles ‘Music’, ‘Sunny Afternoon’, ‘Rolled Up’ ft Mac DeMarco and ‘Nobody’s Fault’ ft Tom Misch and accumulated over 55 millions streams to date.

Benny Sings’ music could well be described as intimate lo-fi Disney hip hop songs. The terms AOR and Yacht Rock are often used to define his sunny 70’s and 80’s melodies. But it’s not all retro: Benny’s happy-sad songwriting, late ‘90s R&B beats and buttery production shape a sound bringing to mind the soundtrack to a just released indie comedy.

Benny has honed a signature sound while creating a colorful catalog of essential pop gems that have led to loyal global following, with fans including John Mayer, Anderson .Paak and Jamie Cullum. Benny Sings co-wrote and produced the international platinum-selling hit ‘Loving Is Easy’ (2017) with Rex Orange County as well as his chart topping album ‘Who Cares’ (2022). Benny collaborated with a wide range of artists like Kenny Beats, Cory Henry, PJ Morton, Marc Rebillet, Emily King, Goldlink, Free Nationals, Mayer Hawthorne, Mocky, Cornelius.

His music has appeared on HBO’s ‘Girls’ and ‘Love Life’ Netflix’s ‘Love Life’ &’Easy’. Benny Sings has also composed for brands like Apple and Kirin and songs for the score of the Japanese Netflix show ‘Carol and Tuesday.’

‘Music’ is Benny Sings’ eighth studio album. At a time when music is needed more than ever, to soothe and bring solace, Benny delivers. On the album’s title track, he sings: “Music, help me through this, whenever I’m down on the floor.” He explains: “It’s so easy to get overstimulated in the world today. We need light and air, we need something that energizes us.

“I’ll always be amazed by the magic of music – how something can spring into being that simply transcends everything.”
