When: Fri., July 12, 8 p.m. 2019
Joe Benjamin, a German-born, New York City-based artist, makes insidiously catchy funk- and disco-inspired pop music. Formerly, the singer-songwriter led Joe Benjamin & a Mighty Handful, a pastiche project calling on the days of big bands and grand vocalists. His new music recalls remnants of yesterday’s sounds filtered through crystal-clear modern production techniques. Twin debut singles “I’ll Never Die” and “Unframed Paintings” suggest the artist is a devilishly charming personality with a penchant for dance music that makes you think. Catch Joe Benjamin on Friday, July 12, at the Skinny Pancake in Burlington.
