Having attended Music Exchange for the last number of years and learning from the best, he feels he has given it his best shot with releasing the album Conqueror.
He has survived trauma and overcome a difficult past of addiction, which is melodically reflected in many songs on the album. Some of these songs include Open Scars, Fighting Temptations and Determination which all express Benson’s personal battles and how he escapes the grip of addiction and navigates through the path of self-discovery.
His ever-changing journey through each new stage of life is processed and delivered through his lyricism and creativity.
