New York, NY
Hello to you! I'm Benji.
I'm also Marwood. That is to say that I sing, write, make records and perform under the name Marwood. It's a long story as to why, but that's where it's at for now!
If I'm not playing shows I ought to be, and if I'm not writing songs I'd better get back to it, as that's what puts a big ol' smile on my face! I used to play thousands of shows all over the world but I am taking a short break as I started a new music company called Pledge Music which is a new way for Artists to fund their albums and tours etc whilst also raising money for charity and keeping their rights.
I am setting to making my seventh official release through Pledge Music and the other seven are available in various forms all over the place: "Another Day Gone" (which is under the name "Ben Rogers Band" and is from way back in the day) "Regular Fips" (Currently sold out in CD but is available in digital) "The Blue E.P." "One Mile Down The Road" "Marwood Live At Rockwood 2006-2007" "A Few More Days"
What else? I like to read, I enjoy a fine whisky (or whiskey) I have no favorite color (or colour) and my goal is to spend less time on the phone and more time at the piano this year. There is more music on my iPod that I can ever listen to, though I still prefer the vinyl! And the only sport I like is Hockey, and I like the Rangers (New York not Glasgow) though it's breaking my heart right now!
Thanks for reading and for listening.
Cheers to you in 2009! Keep in touch.
