Biography

“Andrew Benon has crafted a pitch perfect recreation of great 80’s pop with (Rock and Roll Moves). From the Bowie-esque vocals to the screaming saxophone to the sparkling synths, Rock And Roll Moves deserves to be the summer anthem of convertible drivers everywhere. It almost sounds like it was written by Prince back in his eighties hey day, especially the flawless chorus. Best of all, Andrew Benon’s debut effort is full of this kind of stuff. Many artists (especially on this blog) draw from the eighties for their sound, but few have been as believable as Benon is. Lyrically, Moves is very clever as well, which is always a pleasant surprise in pop music. Finally, on a related note: I need those sunglasses.”

“I Love the ’80s (and so does Andrew Benon)

33-year-old songwriter Andrew Benon attributes his career choice to one particular evening as a youth, sitting in the backseat of his parent’s car in a Pizza Hut parking lot. Suffering from stomach problems, little Andrew Benon was in pain until Hall & Oates “Kiss On My List” started playing on the car radio. That’s when he realized that he wanted to be a rock star.

Many years later, Benon, a Minnesota native, has released his debut, a compact 7-song CD titled Rock and Roll Moves. Before pontificating on the actual music, let me just say that for a debut by an artist not known out of his own zip code, 7 songs is the PERFECT length. Bravo on that alone, Mr. Benon. Bravo.
