Benji doesn't sound like he looks
Benji Hughes was on Jimmie Kimmel live one night, and he came on stage all looking like a motorcycle dude and was I surprised that I like him, he sounded nothing like he looked - no Skynerd riffs, or guitar hero solos. He's kind of Leonard Cohen mixed with melody and weirdness and I am stuck on him. I ordered his CD within a week of listening to the free mp3 I found online.
Take a listen if you have a mind to. His Myspace page has streaming audio of four of his songs which come from his 25 song new LP 'A Love Extreme'. I like 'You Stood me Up' and 'WHy do these Parties always End the Same Way?'. Brings me back to my crazy singledom days.
