Since their formation in summer 2016/17, Benji and the Saltwater Sound System have hit the shore running.
The group’s original tunes have matured quickly after being exposed to audiences at a snowballing number of live shows and high profile festivals slots. The group has selected a handful of these songs to form band’s first EP titled Coming Up for Water, which is due to be released Winter in 2018.
The Coming Up for Water EP and the bands wider music draws upon front man Ben Fowler’s recent 12 month stint living in the remote reaches of the Solomon Islands. Benji and the SSS fuse these pacific flavours with the jazz, reggae, world folk and African roots of its members past musical projects to create hypnotic soundscapes underpinned by painfully catchy melodies. Add to this the beautifully poignant lyrics that Ben has become known for and you can't help but expect something special from this line-up.
The artists in Benji and the Saltwater Sound System have had the honour of playing at acclaimed festivals including; Woodford, the National Folk Festival, Summer Sounds, the Dreaming Festival, Granite Town, Peak Festival, Palm Creek, Corinbank, Sydney Blues Festival, and Illawarra Folk Festival just to name a few.
