"A product of his own Readymade Records label, You Were Right confirms Benson’s forward ascent, an album that should move him from supporting status to the place in the foreground where clearly he belongs. All things considered, it’s a fine example of how true craft can be meted with earnest intent."
You can buy an autographed Epiphone guitar signed by every artist from the Brendan Benson & Friends show at the Ryman, including Jack White, Ricky Skaggs, and Jakob Dylan, check it out HERE! There is also an autographed custom bass drum head available HERE. Both of these items are for sale as donations to the David Lynch Foundation.
We are excited to announce Brendan's appearance and performance at The David Lynch Foundation's honorary event for Ringo Starr! The ceremony is taking place on January 20th (Lynch's Birthday), at The El Rey Theater in L.A.
“The Brendan Benson and Friends show started out as, ‘Why don’t I do a show and have some friends come up and play? That sounds like fun,’” Benson says. “It turned into something bigger than I had planned. I’m stoked. Hopefully, something awesome and beautiful will happen.”
On behalf of Brendan, Team BB, Readymade Records, all of the guest artists & crew - Thank you!! Thanks so much to everyone for making "Brendan Benson & Friends" such a memorable night! Together we sold out the Ryman and benefitted Nashville veterans and children through the David Lynch Foundation. Thank you all for your support and we hope you have a wonderful and safe holiday!
Rolling Stone on "Brendan Benson & Friends":
"Benson and White closed the evening with an elongated performance of the Raconteurs' signature tune "Steady as She Goes." "That's a tough act to follow, but I'm gonna do it anyway," Benson quipped as White left the stage. He then closed the show with a haunting approximation of Eric Burdon and the Animal's sinister, brackish blues-psych classic "When I Was Young."
