Have you heard of Jamie Benkert? If you’re in the U.S. (like me), you may not have any clue at all. In fact, even if you’re from his locale, it’s possible you’re also missing out. He’s an up-and-coming musician in the U.K. So, how did I find him and why should you take a listen?
It all started with clowns. Yeah, you should have known messing with me that clowns would be in the mix. What? Okay, so clowns probably don’t have much to do with Mr. Benkert. However, following yet another clown story is how I happened to find him. I can discover music just about anywhere, as regular readers and those close to me should know.
Anyhow, I noticed Jamie leaving a comment for the journalist of a piece regarding a popular clown. So, me being the music fiend that I am, I had to go check him out. That’s how I roll. Man, am I glad that I did! You may not hear his music on the radio waves yet. But this man’s got talent.
His newest single recently came out via iTunes, Spotify, and other popular download venues. It’s called “Shudder” and that you will do when you hear his sound. You can hear it via YouTube as well: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9qHzFEj80oc. The lyrics are included, for those interested in the full experience.
Rain and other storms tend to really grab my attention. So of course, the subtle storm sounds that are a part of this song really captured my soul. It’s just enough to have an effect, but not so much that it’s distracting from the rest of the song.
If you happen to check out “Shudder” by Jamie Benkert on YouTube, I recommend taking a listen to some of the other stuff he’s got there as well. I wasn’t able to find those songs on Spotify (my download venue/app of choice). Therefore, his YouTube is definitely worth a peep for those interested.
If you’ve had a listen to Jamie, let me know what you think.
