Benny Starr is constantly going against the grain while paying homage to the legends that came before him and crafting bodies of work that require your time and full attention. His most recent body of work, A Water Album, recorded live with his fellow bandmates The Four20s, at Charleston Music Hall, was released on Juneteenth 2019. In January 2020, Benny Starr and singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Rodrick Cliche joined talents and birthed the innovative partnership, Native Son. Their most recent release “The Land” is a rallying cry that echoes the injustices of Black Legacy Farmers at the hands of the USDA, and part of an ongoing partnership with The Acres of Ancestry Initiative/Black Agrarian Fund and The Black Farmers Appeal: Cancel Pigford Debt Campaign. The US Water Alliance welcomed Benny Starr as their inaugural One Water Artist-in-Residence in October 2020. Through his one-year residency with the Alliance, Benny will work with staff and the Alliance network to infuse arts and cultural strategies into thinking, problem-solving, and programming.
