Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, Benji Hughes has been described by many as one of the best songwriters in America today. His 2010 release, A Love Extreme, received a 4-star review in Rolling Stone. In Spring of 2012, he rocked all the fans of HBO's "Eastbound And Down" with his song, "Kenny" that was featured in the closing scenes and end credits of that series finale.
Benji also wrote songs for the Judd Apatow feature, "Walk Hard" and has had numerous film an tv licenses.
His writing and singing talent are a secret weapon for the likes of: T-Bone Burnett, Meshell Ndegeocello and Priscilla Ahn.
To see Benji live is the ultimate closer. His heartbreakingly beautiful voice juxtaposed with his ironic lyrics, long hair, beard and hilarious banter have made him legendary in the LA music scene. It is not unusual to see fans like Sean Penn, Jared Hess, and Paris Hilton in attendance. He has toured America and beyond with Rilo Kiley and Jenny Lewis.
There's no doubt that Benji's multiple upcoming releases will not disappoint.
Benji's songs have also been licensed for movies and TV including, Snow Angels, Beverly Hills, 90210 & How I Met Your Mother. He has also written commercials for GE, Mountain Dew and more.
