Passionate. Creative. Thoughtful. . . . . Benny. Hailing from Staten Island, New York by way of Bogota, Colombia where he was born, the quiet crooner is one of the most refreshing new voices to hit the music industry. With so many talented artists, it is sometimes difficult to make a distinction; not so with Benny.
Benny is a passionate and thoughtful young man who has known his passion for music since the age of 9 when he began singing.

Benny was adopted by a loving family from Staten Island, New York where he was raised and now resides.

Like many of today’s youth, Benny is no stranger to adversity. His mother was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when he was just a young boy; causing him to mature faster than other young people his age.

Benny continued to pursue his music while caring for his mother, working part-time jobs and going to school. At the age of 17, Benny completed his first EP, entitled “The Prelude.” This EP gained him instant success and notoriety in the local community, and allowed him to form alliances with some of today’s hottest producers.
