Yorta Yorta singer/songwriter Benny Walker is the real deal. His guitar-driven grooves mix love songs and epic tales of passion for people, the land and summer vibes that reach the soul.
In 2016 his second release Through the Forest was nominated for four NIMA awards for New Talent of the Year, Best Song, Best Cover art and Best film clip for Oh No You Don’t.
This song heralded a new direction in Benny’s sound and shot to No.1 on the AMRAP chart. It was soon followed by another No.1 with the heart wrenching single SAVE.
2016 closed on a winning streak when Benny took home the gong for Best Aboriginal Act at The Age Music Victoria Music Awards.
In September 2017 Benny released the single GHOST from his EP Undercover; both debuted at No.1 on the iTunes BluesChart.
Benny has performed alongside some of Australia’s finest, including Archie Roach, Alex Lloyd, Blue King Brown and Tim Rogers. In recent years he’s has played some of the country’s favourite festivals including Woodford, Festival of King Island, Deni Rhythm, Blues and Jazz, Blue Mountains and St Kilda Festival.
