BENJAMIN BOOKER - Benjamin Booker

$29.95Price
Benjamin Booker blasted a raw brand of blues/boogie/soul,” observed the Chicago Tribune’s Greg Kot in his SXSW wrap-up. “He likes to leave the rough edges intact, bringing to mind the houserockin' records that Hound Dog Taylor once did for Alligator Records in the '70s.” American Songwriter said, “The 22-year-old New Orleans guitarist/songwriter – joined live by drummer/mandolin player Max Norton – took the stage as an unknown and…stepped off the stage a conqueror.” “It might look like just two people onstage but Benjamin Booker’s voice surely counts as a band member in its own right. Soulful and sandpaper-rough…” noted The Guardian while NME said, “he takes the ripped, raw racket of The Dirtbombs and smothers it in fuzzy, inherently moody-sounding riffs that recall The Gun Club and T Rex in equal measure.” 
Booker’s debut album, produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For The Riff Raff), will be released on 15 August 2014.
Booker has been hand-picked to open for Jack White on a series of US July dates, and following his first UK headline tour in May will play a series of US dates with Courtney Barnett & Drive By Truckers. He is currently on tour in the US with Hurray For The Riff Raff.
