BenKN is an electro-acoustic multimedia artist who skillfully mixes his conspicuously tour-beaten guitar with subtle synths, beats, and organic samples. Formerly a co-frontman for Los Angeles-based indie rock behemoths, Jupiter Sunrise, Ben’s new solo work augments his smart song writing in beautiful soundscapes and driving hooks. Ben also creates silkscreen poster art & clothing designs for Design it Together, a studio he co-founded with designer Taylor Gillis as a sister company to Do It Together Records. Many of Ben’s designs promote sources of renewable energy, conservation, and other issues close to his heart. Making great strides in art and music circles, BenKN is fast becoming a crowd favorite among the numerous art and music festivals at which he performs and exhibits his work.In 2008, Ben released his first solo EP, We Are Giants Now via Collar City Records. His forthcoming record, “The Reverie of Ruby Star,” (working title) is currently being recorded and planned for a Spring 2011 release.
