“Zach Benton never imagined that his first album would do as well as it has, but after the unexpected success he has decided to continue his musical career and is working on his second album.”

“The son of a music teacher, Benton's debut album, Fall In, recently hit #6 on the iTunes charts for new releases in the R&B/Soul chart listing.”

“Many musicians play their music for a live audience after they’ve recorded an album. Zach Benton decided to try the opposite approach. Benton, of Keene, used the audience as a gauge for the songs on his new album, “Fall In.” Now they’ll hear the 10-tune collection in its entirety during an album release party this evening at Fritz, the Place to Eat in downtown Keene.”

“He has been performing for ten years and...waited a long time for something like this.”

“Benton now plays every instrument when he records including bass, guitar, keyboards and drums as well as doing his own vocals.”

“Zach is extremely dedicated to his craft. Some musicians you see kind of haphazardly try but Zach will always try to do exactly what Zach wants to do. I think he’s a superb musician. [Zach’s] got a very unique sound, a very unique voice.”

“On the majority of the tracks he’s recorded so far, he played all the other instruments and did all the vocals himself.”

“He's a cool dude from New England and the ultimate DIY artist.”

“In his recorded songs, he makes up all of the parts. For example, in his song titled “Take It Slow,” Benton performed vocals, backup vocals, guitar, drum and piano.”

“Nobody sounds like Zach.”

“His many musical experiences have informed his songwriting, and now audiences will hear what he’s been up to the past few years when he performs selections from his new EP, “Mister Roberts’ Epiphany,” Saturday, March 17, at the Starving Artist in Keene. Benton, of Keene, said his title song is about a fictional character somewhat based on himself.”
