Bencjones is a genre-smashing Alt/Pop/country-soul artist who has been grabbing attention and steadily building his career for the last few years. He’s a high-value vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer from Fort Worth, Texas with a distinctive vision that he reveals to his fans a little more with each new release. His latest effort, High Beams, Back Roads & Hi-Fi, breaks out June 17th, 2022 and blends R&B, country, roots rock, and more into a song cycle the likes of which you’ve never experienced before. Tracks like “Black Beach Boy,” “I’ll Find A Way,” and “Can’t Let Go” bring the world the most evolved version of Jones yet and will likely elevate him to a new level of the game.
Jones is a literate, articulate songwriter and a multifaceted musician who shines on guitar, bass, drums, organ, and synthesizer. His first album, Just One Gun, dropped in 2019 and made an impact throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth region. It also received radio airplay on 91.7 KXT, 103.7 ALTFM, 97.1 The Eagle, and 97.5KFTW. He was covered in The Fort Worth Weekly and earned a spot on the publication’s Top 20 Music Videos Of 2019 list. Jones is also an acclaimed live performer, and has appeared in DFW, Chicago, Austin, Nashville, and Mexico City.
His sophomore effort, First They Get Your Money, came out in 2020 loaded with indescribably soulful and powerful tracks that demonstrated to his listeners that he was clearly developing into a formidable artist. He was compared to Lenny Kravitz, The Black Keys, and The White Stripes but the record proved conclusively that he was no sound-alike and stood tall on its own. Bencjones closed out 2020 by being selected to the Sounds of Resilience grant program, a major endorsement of his songwriting skills and his drive to succeed.
His last two projects, the EPs Afraid of Me (October 2021) and Disaster (July 2021), were inspired by the events of the year 2020. Each one showed Ben increasing his artistry and growing by leaps and bounds. Now, with a new album and an open world in front of him, Bencjones is prepared to take the original music he loves as far as he can. He’s a crucial emerging talent at the peak of his powers. Anyone looking for the next smart-talking, cool-walking lyrical songwriter about to impress the planet needs to turn their gaze his way.
