Yorta Yorta singer/songwriter Benny Walker is the real deal.
His love songs and epic tales are mixed with passion for people, the land, summer vibes and deep grooves that reach the soul. Capturing hearts with darker tracks reflecting a shadowy side such as those on album Through the Forest through to upbeat songs such as Summer Sun Benny’s killer voice and songwriting talents have impressed audiences far & wide.
Nominated for 4 NIMA awards in 2016 for Oh No You Don’t a song that shot to No.1 on the AMRAP chart was soon followed by another No.1 with the heart wrenching single SAVE. Both songs were the beginnings of a new direction for Benny and were produced by [ARIA Award winning] Jan Skubiszewski .
2016 closed on a winning streak when Benny took home the gong for Best Aboriginal Act at The Age Music Victoria Music Awards 2016 last November.
