If you have let loose with the BENJAMIN BOOKER track “Violent Shiver” like I have over the past few weeks, then you know exactly where I am coming from. But if you are getting your first glimpse of the rising New Orleans based singer-songwriter, then get up and prepare to be amazed. “Violent Shiver” takes me back to what I imagine to be the good old days of rock and roll. Where sexy guitar riffs and the relentless pounding of the drums would make me want to get out of my seat and let everything go. Beautifully blending some of the most exciting elements of punk, garage rock, folk and blues, BENJAMIN BOOKER has created a sound that is nostalgically fervent with a lot of modern-day appeal. There is no doubt in my mind seeing a live show by this guy would be absolutely amazing. And something I might just have to get done this year!
Check out BENJAMIN BOOKER this summer as he plays some dates with the incredible Jack White. Dates and time provided below! And be on the look out for a self-titled debut album on ATO Records due out before the end of the year.
