Benjamin Booker is a new breed of Bluesman. Based in New Orleans, the 28 year old draws his influence from post-War electric Blues, and garage punk. His first single “Violent Shiver” and self-titled album of 2014 earned him critical praise with no signs of slowing down. In 2017 he released ‘Witness’ an album that he created in response to the racial tensions facing America in 2017.
