$600 - $5000 per event
As a performer, Peter Benjamin delivers a unique and powerful blend of 70's-inspired folk rock and modern indie rock. His lyric and melodically driven artistry evokes classic and contemporary pop and rock artists such as Peter Gabriel, David Gray, Mark Knopfler, and John Mayer, as well as the alternative sounds of Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontaigne, and My Morning Jacket. As a songwriter, Benjamin also owes much of his style to the pop sensibilities of prolific and iconic tunesmiths like Billy Joel, Sting, and Phil Collins.

Peter's band features top players from the Seattle area and beyond, including Jeremy Lightfoot (Blake Lewis) and Jeff Leonard (fruition).

In the early 2000's, Peter co-founded Seattle-based post alternative group Edisyn, who enjoyed status as Seattle club scene staple from 2003 to 2008. Edisyn authored three acclaimed releases to a notoriously fickle Seattle original music scene before parting ways.

Benjamin is at home performing for a wide range of audiences including all ages festivals, clubs, special events, etc., carefully crafting his program material to each event. This often includes adding a healthy dose of exciting cover songs to his sets designed to give audiences additional context for the original music as well as greater insight into the influences from which he draws.

Peter Benjamin was so incredibly easy to work with and was so knowledgable when it came to planning music for our wedding. His band is so talented and sounded amazing! He was so easy to get in contact with and quick to respond. He learned to play several songs that I had requested and they were beautiful! I definitely recommend Peter Benjamin for a wedding!

Peter and his bassist (Jim?) were a fantastic choice for our wedding. Our venue had a unique "no amplification" policy, but Peter was willing to accommodate despite having to locate an acoustic bass. He played "It takes two" while we walked down the isle, and his own spin on "Isn't She Lovely" in which he whistles instead of sings (awesome) while we departed the ceremony. Then he played all sorts of hits for the next 3 hours at the reception. He was also one of the most competitive bids for the wedding. Highly recommend!

My husband and I hired Peter Benjamin for our wedding and they were amazing. The music was a great fit for our wedding and the band was incredibly talented. We got nothing but complements from our guests about how wonderful the music was. Everyone wanted to know how we found such an awesome band! We are extremely grateful that Peter Benjamin was able to play for our wedding, it was truly perfect.
