Benny Tones Bio:
Fondly considered as the 4th member of Wellington future soul band Electric Wire Hustle you may have already witnessed some of the audio magic of Benny Tones without realizing it.
As Electric Wire Hustle’s Sound Tech Benny has been responsible for mixing EWH’s live sound since their very first performance and having set up his own studio in Wellington – Organik Muzik Workz – also recorded and mixed the groups debut album.
As well as having chief responsibility for mixing EWH’s live and studio sound Benny is also a full time Studio Audio engineer and has also engineered for such acts as Pacific Heights, Sola Rosa, Julien Dyne, Iva Lamkum and Hollie Smith.
Alongside being a highly regarded Sound Engineer Benny is also a producer in his own right and his solo full length album ‘Chrysalis’ is available on Every Waking Hour in New Zealand and BBE (UK) internationally.
‘Chrysalis’ represents Benny Tone’s re-introduction as a producer and features a diverse host of vocal and instrumental collaborators including Electric Wire Hustle’s Mara TK, Taay Ninh & Myele Manzanza, Joe Dukie, LP, LA’s Shihan The Poet, Adi Dick and Sacha Vee . Set against exquisite production which is the result of hundreds of hours clocked up in the studio and perhaps an upbringing in the beautiful area of Golden Bay.
