-Seattle Weekly


"Robb Benson has a real gift for alternative pop. It's literate, heartfelt, memorable stuff, and Benson is an onstage bundle of nerves and energy."

-Tom Phalen (


" Often gentle and wholesome, sometimes acrimonious, Benson's songwriting warmly refers to the Beatles."
- Corianton Hale (The Stranger)

- Hal Horowitz (all music guide)
