Benji has formed a new band!  'The Excess', a trio, will take to the road this year with a new set of songs from Benji, the other members being Pete Flood (Bellowhead) on drums and Pete Thomas (Jackie Oates/Megan Henwood) on bass. A plan in gestation for some time, it is now being realised.
Benji is at the forefront of the UK folk and roots scene, be it making a racket with now defunct big band folk pioneers Bellowhead, forging "bloke folk" with heavy hitting acoustic trio Faustus, or tackling the songs of Jimi Hendrix in stripped back acoustic style, as well as writing his own powerful material.

Please take a look around.
