Garrin Benfield / Press

"One of the best, under-sung singer-songwriters to emerge from the Bay Area in recent years, Benfield's also a wicked guitarist and an awful nice human being well worth your concert going dollars."

“This is a player who is not only inventive, he's inspiring. A musician's musician, Benfield is a must-see act for anyone who mistakenly thinks solo artists are limited. Benfield will blow that preconception right out of your mind. ”

Music Connection Magazine

“Always contemplative and disarmingly matter-of-fact, Garrin's lyrics present a clean, pure line and a distilled, no-nonsense sensibility. Those same qualities cross over into the instrumental arrangements of his songs, which are quietly inclusive of many different styles.”

Bay Windows Magazine

“For people looking for music that breaks the boundaries of the typical jam and comes out the other side with wit, intelligence, and structure, one ray of light is Garrin Benfield.”


“Benfield is a stellar artist with a distinctive guitar style..even his acoustic-based music is electric in nature... licks as dexterous as those of the late Michael Hedges. ”
