Through his masterful flow and lyricism, magnetic stage presence, Pineville, South Carolina’s Benny Starr is an artist both timeless, and perfectly poised for his time and place.
The buzz around Starr’s talent has been growing for years through his singles, EPs, mixtapes, and freestyle performances, leading to the release of his first LP in 2015 entitled Free Lunch. Charleston City Paper’s Kyle Peterson described the record as “a soul and R&B sample-infused effort that showcased the emcee’s formidable technical skills and keen political and social consciousness, music that harkens back to hip-hop titans Nas and Talib Kweli.”
Starr continues to further his reputation as a deft collaborator and community leader. In 2016, he released a live band EP with Very Hypnotic Soul Band. VHSB is a group of socially conscious artists who collaborate on high concept genre-bending projects.
His most recent solo project, A Water Album, recorded live at Charleston Music Hall, is slated for a Juneteenth 2019 release and will continue to highlight Benny Starr as an undeniably powerful artistic force.
