Benny Fowler

 

 

After returning to Australia after a year of village living in remote Solomon Islands Benny Fowler has re-established his place in the Australian music scene. Benny has snapped out of his culture shock and fallen into a shockingly original take on pacific islander flavored music.

Benny's music draws on islander flavours fused with the reggae and African roots of his past musical projects to create hypnotic soundscapes underpinned by painfully catchy melodies. Add to this the beautifully poignant lyrics that Benny has become known for and you can't help but expect something special.

Benny has had the honour of playing at numerous acclaimed festivals, venues and events. These include Woodford, the National Folk Festival, Peak Festival, Corinbank, the Dreaming Festival, Granite Town, Summer Rhythm, Sydney Blues Festival, and Illawarra Folk Festival just to name a few.

World folk music with a gentle edge that cuts.
