I Don’t Blame Youis pure Blues-rock, buoyed by clean, gutsy lyrical guitar solos and the throb of electric organ; Benny Walker’s new track is a must have on your playlist. Think vintage instruments and recording gear, add production by ARIA award winner Pip Normanand the end result is a perfect balance of warm tones, punchy musicality and a mix that cuts through.

“From the moment we stepped into the studio, I had a really clear idea of how I wanted “I Don’t Blame You” to sound. Pip (Norman) and I had referenced a few records that we really loved from a sonic stand point, Namely Alabama Shakes “Sound and Colour” album as well as keeping in mind some of the great recordings of the past, such as the Rolling Stones. Our approach was to use vintage instruments and recording gear, get the band in a room together and capture a great take and then add Pip’s production elements later.” Says Benny.

Said to be one of the best voices in Australia, Yorta Yorta man Benny Walker never fails to take you on a emotionally driven journey. “Walker’s voice has the drag and timbre of a natural soul man…” Michael Dwyer – Fairfax Media

Benny Walker won the Music Victoria ‘2016 Best Aboriginal Act’, has been nominated for numerous NIMAS and performed at many premier festivals including Byron Bluesfest where he is fast becoming a favourite and will appear again this Easter for a second consecutive year.
