Garrin Benfield gained notice in 2000 with his stark tribute to Matthew Shepard, “What You’re Hiding,” which was used in a production of the Laramie Project. In 2002, after recording his second CD, “Nowhere is Brighter,” with Bonnie Raitt’s rhythm section and guest Boz Scaggs, Benfield took up a relentless touring schedule, both as a solo artist and with his band. Some of these increasingly improvisation-heavy sets were documented on the 2003 release, “August Live.” 2004 saw the release of “Where Joy Kills Sorrow” and Benfield’s first foray into live improvisational looping, which enabled him to tour solo but with added layers of beats, bass lines and the searing lead guitar Benfield’s hardcore fans have come to expect.

“The Wave Organ Song” is Benfield’s fifth full-length CD of original songs.

Playing eclectic sets at hundreds of shows every year, Benfield has become an underground favorite at festivals, rock clubs, coffeehouses and house concerts.
