Benjamin Booker


I heard it right away with the Chuck Berry-styled lick that ignites "Violet Shiver," the first track off Benjamin Booker's debut album. From there Booker blends rock, blues, punk and alt-country in a diverse mix that flows throughout. In his early 20s, originally from Tampa and based now in New Orleans, Booker is also a dynamic live performer, which you can see and hear in the FUV vault. (Dennis Elsas)
