Daniel Benyamin // Ghost Palace Records

About the Artist

No matter if solo, with his bands SEA + AIR, Jumbo Jet or as drummer of San Francisco’ s 70’s post-punk legend Toiling Midgets and bassist of The Strokes producer Gordon Raphael’s band. The idea of creating his own musical lava by blending multiple genres has been following Daniel Benyamin’s music since his childhood days in the black forest countryside.

This connection of rebellion and love already manifested in the combination of energetic punk rock and beautiful melodies of his first band when he was 12 years old.

About the Music

Until now he played over 2000 concerts in more than 35 countries, toured with very different artists such as Sufjan Stevens, Whitney Houston, The Flaming Lips or The Divine Comedy and still keeps up DIY idealism even though he sold tens of thousands of records, wrote over 350 songs, more than 10 major film soundtracks and even made it to the top 50 of the German album charts.

His biggest success is gathering a loyal international fan base by projecting a truthful image of himself in his well-crafted songs, looking for honest emotions rather than commercial success.
