My name is Bryan James Benson and this band page consists of songs I have mostly written and created myself, with the exception of some drum tracks laid down by
I personally have been throwing song ideas together for the last 6 years or so and have decided to play, record, and mixdown a lot of this material into "first draft" songs, allowing more time to write and record vs. spending countless man hours on touching up and mastering them myself in my basement studio, by which I am somewhat of an amateur at these processes! Thus, my songs are currently more like an open highway with room to veer to either side at any time in the future. Just a little piece of my mind displayed to you, the grand and noble song listener!

Have you performed in front of an audience?
Since I was 17, I have played numerous bars, clubs, casinos, and festivals in Michigan. I really dig jamming live to the masses! The energy you feel from an excited and enthused crowd far surpasses my love of hiding away in the studio and slowly grinding away at new ideas, which can be exhausting and boring at times!
Your musical influences
I think that you can hear, at times, everything from Jimmy Page, Hendrix, to Angus Young or Slash in my guitar style. Other times, maybe more Jerry Cantrell-like. These guys were major guitar heroes to me at different points in my life and have shaped my sound somewhat. As for vocals, I really influenced by Layne Staley(Alice in Chains), Scott Weiland(STP), Robert Plant(Zep), David Coverdale(Whitesnake) Ian Gillan(Deep Purple) John Mayer, Caleb Followill(Kings of Leon), the Temptations, Levi Stubbs (the 4 Tops)...I think that's enough...
What equipment do you use?
I use a Fender Stratocaster along with a quilt-top Les Paul. My amp is a Marshall slant cabinet with four 12" speakers and a Marshall JCM triple super lead guitar amp head. My pedals are a Boss tuner, Boss chorus, Boss Digital Delay, and an advanced model of the Jim Dunlop crybaby wah pedal. I have other rigs, but this is my main work horse.
Anything else?
Music IS LIFE!
