One of the most hard working and anthemic folk punk acts to come out of Australia, Benny Mayhem has covered a lot of ground, literally and figuratively.
His latest single, ‘Bulwer Street Waltz’, has seen him tour the UK and Europe again through 2018 with his band, playing Festivals and Club Shows.
The track is a no-holds-barred blend of Irish folk rhythms and melodic folk-punk energy, garnished with a modern hint of pub rock.
From being primarily a solo artist in 2016, the last 2 years has seen the Benny Mayhem experience evolve into a 5 piece band which combines power and harmonies in his unique folk-punk style.
Musically, they blend the roots of the folk punk genre (bands such as The Pogues, Flogging Molly, Arcade Fire) with an Australian element that has been compared in style to Paul Kelly and other storytellers.
Ben’s roots are in the South West Australian town of Albany, famous for its whales and the beautiful yet treacherous Southern Ocean that has inspired much of his work. At the Boat Shed Market this Sunday Benny will perform the popular ‘Unplugged’ Acoustic Folk Punk Experience.
