The Benson sisters grew up in a paradise in Hawaii surrounded by a loving family and community who nurtured their talents. Their hometown was a Garden of Eden, but just over yonder big-town success gleamed; the shiny juicy apple of LA called out to them.
The Benson sisters write from their experiences and emotions as they pursue their dreams and ambitions. The band’s aesthetic is a vibrant mosaic of the sisters’ influences, including pop, electronic, alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and indie-pop. Crimson Apple counts as inspirations a refreshingly diverse mix of artists such as Taylor Swift, Imagine Dragons, Twenty One Pilots and etc.
Crimson Apple is Colby Benson, lead vocals; Shelby Benson, guitar; Carthi Benson, bass; and Faith Benson, drums. Since the band’s inception in 2012, Crimson Apple has shared the stage with such venerated artists and the group’s 2015 debut album, Hello, garnered commercial airing in Hawaii, across the internet, and won them numerous awards.
In 2015, Crimson Apple relocated to California to further pursue music. Since the move, the band has performed in numerous venues in numerous states. The band is working on their next release and will be touring regionally and nationally.
