About Brendan Benson

A Michigan-bred singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist who occupies the more rock-driven end of the power pop spectrum, Brendan Benson earned critical acclaim during the front half of the 2000s with albums like Lapalco and The Alternative to Love. Benson's profile was significantly raised when he and Jack White formed the rock & roll supergroup the Raconteurs, cracking the Top Ten in the U.K. and America with a pair of highly regarded albums in 2006's Broken Boy Soldiers and 2008's Consolers of the Lonely. Benson resumed his solo career, releasing three more albums between 2009 and 2013 and launching his own label. He also branched out into production and co-writing, working with Robyn Hitchcock, Jake Bugg, and Young the Giant. In 2019, the Raconteurs returned with their chart-topping third album, and Benson made his own return with Dear Life a year later.
