Benjamin-Booker

Benjamin Booker, 22, has only been at the music game for two years, and already he's landed a label deal, played Lollapalooza, secured a slot on the upcoming ACL Fest, and toured with Jack White - and his album doesn't even come out until this Tuesday, August 19th. Check out his recent performance in the KEXP studios below of his single "Violent Shiver," which has been catching my ear for the past few weeks (and has a riff that would make even Chuck Berry proud). You can also hear the entire record on NPR's First Listen series here.
