This digital caveman combines traditional earthly
instruments and rhythm with out-of-this-world sci-fi sounds
and effects that feel like galactic voodoo. His performance
enthralls and captivates the audience as he swaps from
instrument to instrument, building unfathomable
psychedelic layers of sound with a big fat loop pedal,
some soulful harmonies and a decent dose of beatboxing
thrown in. Renowned for his amazing voice, wild guitar
technique and incredibly huge sound, his songs are
deliciously underlined with hypnotic percussive grooves
that he creates live and seemingly out of nothing.
“Imagine if John Butler, Lenny Kravitz, Nina Simone, Paul
Simon, King Tubby and Beck had an orgy at a world
music festival and gave birth to a magical musical
baby……..that baby would be Benny D Williams.”
His solo career, so far, has taken him to some great
stages and festivals such as Blues On Broadbeach,
Bleach Festival, Swell Festival, Seaside Sounds, Surfers-
Live Festival, Stanthorpe Apple and Grape Festival and
multiple tours up and down the east coast Australia,
seeking out the stories and rhythms from the cultural
melting pot of this wonderful land.
