"Changing the focus", that is what this young singer/songwriter from Buenos Aires, Argentina, is all about. "I'm on my way and I'm only looking up..." go the lyrics to one of his latest releases "One Desire", song from the "Feel it Grow" EP. Simon joyfully takes us on a journey to the place we ought to be, through his music.
To accomplish this he strives to create a harmonic environment in all of his songs. Through simple melodies and lyrics, which resonate with the unspoiled center of our being, Simon's music makes it easy for us to dive deep into a state of serene contemplation.
He began developing his craft at an early age, when he formed a band with his brothers, but it wasn't until he attended Berklee College of Music that he discovered his true passion for songwriting. Moving to the northern hemisphere and entering this new world (Berklee) can be intimidating for the quality of musicianship that coexist in this unknown place. As a result he secluded himself to his voice and acoustic guitar, and that's how his musical identity began to take shape.
After finding his voice he found his message, which was effectively portrayed in his first solo realease, "The Age of Simple". Later on Simon continued to elaborate it with his band "Simon Benegas Project" on their EP "Feel it Grow". There's always more music on the horizon as he keeps writing and discovering ways to convey his positive thinking.
Simon Benegas Project is about to embark on their very first North American Tour, hitting cities around the East Coast of the US and Canada this coming Fall. Scroll down to see where Simon and his band will be performing and RSVP now!
