Robb Benson & the Shelk

Robb Benson & the Shelk

The latest solo project from Robb Benson is being built.
In Seattle it's usually a full band of friends, a super group of one sort or another.

On tour at this point is it solo with SHELK being the bionic arm (Looper, sampler, laptop).

I am a singer songwriter that plays a variety of indie-pop-rock-folk-soul-garage-altcountry-electronic and American roots type stuff.

I am releasing my 5th solo album in July, I have 15 CDs with several bands including my old group Dear John Letters who reached as high as #34 on the National CMJ charts.

Over the years I have opened for Death Cab For Cutie, The Presidents, The Posies, Nelly Furtado, Fountains of Wayne, Clem Snide, Harvey Danger, You and I, and so many more I could not list them all now. I was nominated 3 years in a row in the SEATTLE WEEKLY's best singer songwriter category... though I never won (Brandi Carlisle, Jon Auer, and Damian Jerado went on to win them years) but great company to be in if you ask me.
