A Rising star !


A fan of Quebec music from an early age, BENNY JONES spent his childhood touring local theaters, in Grande-Rivière in Gaspésie, dreaming of one day finding himself on these stages. Self-taught, young Benny learns the basics guitar using a song by Okoumé. With a few chords and a love of words, he finally composed his first original songs. His compositions with folk flavors allowed him to win the Stingray Star award in 2019. Building on the success of his previous single, Benny does it again today with director Martin Hogan and his folk arrangements, delivering is brand new single "Dehors" (= Outside). With refreshing rhythms and comforting melodies, Benny offers a sensitive and sensible text exploring the torments of mental health. In these grey and dark times of very short days, "Dehors" is the necessary light for all those who need it in this gloomy season. With this song, he hopes to give a little hope to the disenchanted. To listen if you have the seasonal blues! www.bennyjonesmusique.com
