Described as a “creative chameleon” and a “fierce musical force,” Benjy Bradshaw is the epitome of a DIY musician putting out new music often. Raised in a working-class suburb outside of Oakland, California, USA, his multi-ethnic background (Native American, Portuguese, English, Irish) and private Catholic school education ultimately contributed to his constant exploration of self leading to his love of pop music and various bands.
Benjy became more aware of his creative impulses and pop music cravings after living the London, England nightlife scene. Two months after graduating from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Benjy wrote his first official song, “Online Boy,” touching on the innovations and pitfalls of 21st century queer life. In the years following, Benjy found healing through creating new music in private.
Today, Benjy is ready to share all the new music that he has made — inspired primarily by dance, house, new wave, and pop music. Benjy also loves to "art direct his life" -- experimenting with photography, makeup, fashion, and design. Currently producing an unreleased catalogue of over 30 songs, Benjy does not fit the blueprint of a typical pop star, but proves that being a perfectly imperfect self-built artist can be even more exciting.
