Welcome to Sound Read Six - Where new music comes to you.
Utilising a professional lo-fi sound from his own home studio, Benji Tranter makes brilliant and inventive music that fans can’t get enough of. A virtuoso singer and the master of many instruments, the ingredients Benji chooses to make his sounds have varied origins and mentalities. Making music with his friends has been the foundation of Benji Tranter’s expression and his new album Songs To Make You Happy has been dutifully created with himself and the people who make it all fit together. A live band sound is what it’s all about. A member of the power-pop trio Ski Lift and part of the new-folk band The All Night Chemist, a solo project seems perfectly appropriate for this prolific artist. His work has been featured on BBC Radio’s national and local stations, plus Benji Tranter is no stranger to big performances including Glastonbury, Edinburgh Fringe, and support slots for Tom Robinson.
Palm muted guitar chords chug out a rhythm as a progression unravels from the sound. Benji brings the song to a bouncy riff that slides from side to side. Homely and clear vocals reach out in melodious phrases, a tongue in cheek nod to the speed camera that hides around the bend. Guitar phrases open out in drumming fills as blues and folk melodies frolic and dance to timings in tune. A fun and uplifting burst of creativity meets meaning and dark imagery a the choppy and tuneful piece evolves.
