Stuart Benbow 9


Westland, US   Feb 2012  

Artist Bio

Influences:   A lot of the guy/girl-with-guitar folks from yesterday and today have had their tunes rolling around in my head, and I’ve covered many over the years. The John Denver/Jim Croce/James Taylor era folks were especially prominent.

Year 8 - FAWMer, with successes ranging from come on muse, anything, just one more tune before midnight all the way to damn, that was easy.

I play acoustic Americana, blending folk, pop and country as my bread and butter, though from time to time I get more experimental during FAWM.

A new year, no plan, and no idea what to expect. I’ve been busy turning a school bus into an RV for touring for a few months now, and getting close to being able to hit the open road. If you would be interested in having me play in your area, or sharing s stage, hit me up. I’m booking tour dates across North America over the next two years starting around June.

Feel free to be constructive rather than kind. The quality is going to vary, as will the effort I put into the demos. Typically they range from - crawled out of bed and recorded an idea into my phone while half asleep through carefully recorded productions.
Collaborations are welcome during FAWM under the agreement they will, by default, NOT be considered joint works. All contributions will be individually owned unless other agreements are made in advance. I am open to true co-writes with shared ownership, but this must be established in advance of a joint effort. If you have any questions feel free to email me:

    Thanks for checking out the creepy subway song! I added some freaky guitar and remixed, so now it is about 1000 times more creepy, in case you wanted to check that out, lol. πŸ˜€

    Greeting Stuart. Good to see you 'back on the bus', so to speak, ha ha. As the old Firesign Theater album stated, "I think we're all bozos on this bus." Boy, I could go on and on with the bus comments, but I won't. Looking forward to hearing your usual busload of tunes this year. Oh, oops, sorry...
