About Benjamin Booker

Benjamin Booker was one of the new breed of bluesmen in the new millennium, one who drew equally from postwar electric blues, trashy garage punk, and a bit of classic rock -- one who was influenced by the rise of the White Stripes and the music that inspired that seminal Detroit duo. This much was evident from his eponymous debut, released in 2014. He recorded the effort with producer Andrija Tokic, who helmed the debut by kindred spirits Alabama Shakes, and promoted its release with several performances, including a jam session with Jack White that seemed a bit like a passing of the torch. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
