Proudly presenting my Spring EP. I hope you will like it. Enjoy! 🙂
The bass player in the funk band that I play with found this rhythmic displacement line on a youtube channel called ‘studio jams’. He’s been driving us mad with it ever since. Thing is, when the guys on YT play it they speed up slightly, making it very hard to get just right. I decided to see if I could put it together ‘straight’. Here’s the result…..
Thanks to Tim Bragg for the flute, Andy ‘SupaWal’ Bennett for the drums, and Serge Bardot for the bass. I played the guitar and keyboards parts. It was fun! 🙂
Just for your ears only! Here’s a link to a song I have been working on with ace songwriter Graham Evans. It’s a funky number entitled Alien Bride.
We got Serge Baudot on bass. Andy ‘supawal’ Bennett on drums. Dr Gachet on brass, me on guitars.
Cock a deaf un 🙂
Here it is, as promised! This morning the release of the very first Benbros album. Today also marks the birthday of my brother Supawal, and the 10th anniversary of Carla and I moving to France! You can download a selection of tracks from our album for free this morning at the link below. Wishing you all a fabulous day.
With the release of our first album “Friday’s Child”, just over a week away, we’ve been asked what sort of shizz is it? Here is a taster of type of shizz it iz! This track will give you the idea, and although it won’t appear on the album you can download it for free! Please give us a like, share it, and leave a comment.
Me and my brother… “Benbros” have an album of original compositions coming out soon! Here is one of the early cover designs….we didn’t use it.
