A cult following is growing down-under for BENJALU, thanks to their intense work ethic and a flood of Summer festival appearances. The band is always sonically evolving via new influences and perhaps some of those stories…
BENJALU’s songs are a collaboration of five unique individuals and their diverse musical influences, with some fresh sea spray and sun thrown in, a good dose of melody and a dash of psychedelia. Their live shows always result in a room of sweaty punters, a very happy publican and a host of new friends. Their recordings on the other hand reveal honest lyrics, a knack for vocal harmonies and savvy guitar licks.

Not just another singer, Barry Charles is a man with an extraordinary voice. Regarded as one of the most innovative vocalists around today, he exhibits his five octave range with powerful textures of tone and emotion.
Barry’s performances mesmerise with deep blues grooves and wildly free improvised vocal scatting. His legendary vocal range (from Tibetan Monk lows, to Motown heights), is accompanied by his driving blues rhythms.
He selects his songs carefully, with an eclectic mix of his originals and selected album covers which he gives with his own unique interpretation. His song-writing touches the soul with observations of life, love, fantasy and humor – darkness and light. Continue reading
