Hear A New Mix Of Influences From A New Artist From New Orleans –Benjamin Booker

May 7, 2014 - You are hearing something pretty fresh with our guest today. Benjamin Booker is based out of New Orleans but is new to the city and he didn’t really start making music until he moved there a few years ago for entirely nonmusical reasons. His music is a mix of what he loves including hard-core like Black Flag and Bad Brains, blues from Blind Willie Johnson and the inevitable effect of New Orleans, a city he loves. He has an EP out that he recorded himself that wasn't really initially meant for public consumption and his debut album is out in August.
