Brendan Benson

Brendan Benson

In Brendan Benson lies a genuine American voice. A co-founding member of The Raconteurs, Benson has released critically acclaimed albums throughout the past decade. On 1996’s One Mississippi, the songs came rough-hewn but charged with hooks and with wit; 2002’s Lapalco brought a perfect pop ripeness, and by The Alternative to Love in 2005, there was something quite brilliant, quite burnished about his songwriting. This year's offering, My Old, Familiar Friend, gathers all of these influences — the Americanness, Anglophile twist, the geography, the rock and the pop to create something truly exceptional.

"The kind of best-kept secret you want to share with anyone who will listen."
