After years of making music, releasing singles and EPs, and doing countless shows both locally and across the country, Bensbeendead. is finally releasing his debut album. Perhaps even more exciting and relieving? He has finally been able to shake that feeling that so many artists have felt and some even succumb to – Imposter Syndrome. It should come as no surprise then that this feeling was once the title of the project that had been years in the making…but after years of reps, refining skills, and ultimately becoming the artist you know you are, are you really an imposter? Of course, some will never shake that feeling. Some, like Bensbeendead., will sail on to smoother seas. The voyage has just begun as ‘Sail Eden’, the debut album from Bensbeendead., has finally arrived.
We talk about the inspiring and personal story behind the title change, how Ben started his music career as a rapper, what’s on the horizon beyond ‘Sail Eden’, and much more in this interview.
