Gentle Ben and his Trained Guitar / Press

“Benny may be the most original songwriter since Arlo Guthrie.”

“Was hooked from the second your storytelling began. The guitar playing is lovely and the vocal amazing...sang with such honesty. "The Music Tree" is so beautiful and the lyrics really touched me...wonderful..”

Carrie Altoona - Facebook

“You continue to impress me with those really simple lyrics that just zing. I am a big fan of your story telling.”

Dennis Field - Frettie

"..writing about lovers I had never loved and things i'd never done.." that's one of the most perfect summations about the weird craft of songwriting that we all do my friend..simply brilliant song! and I really loved the wit and storytelling of "what's your alibi?"..

“Ben, Thank you for your song "The Music Tree". It brought tears to my eyes.”

Suzy Moody - Facebook
