Benjamin Booker’s new record is partly the result of a trip he took to Mexico City, which gave him a broader perspective on his own world. Booker has an excellent sound that mixes all the best hallmarks of classic soul and R&B with an edgy garage blues touch. Witness, which features a guest vocal from Mavis Staples(!) is released by Rough Trade.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 8th February 2018

This New Orleans musician can be a rocker, and he can most definitely do the blues/soul thing—with class, style and a boatload of talent. His take on the rural gospel genre is inescapably infectious; one listen and you’ll be clapping & swaying like a member of the choir. An odd, but extremely well integrated, thread of country-tribal/pop experimentalism runs through the music, hinting at a potential industrial threat. Booker’s haunted, whispery voice packs a subtle power that adeptly mixes grit and tenderness to achieve a compellingly warm emotional pull.
