Bio

Benjamin was born in Los Angeles, California, living there until the age of 11 years, at which time he moved to Madrid Spain with his family. As a child, he studied drama in Los Angeles under the tutelage of Lurene Tuttle.

While still a teenager, Benjamin's initial taste of the music recording industry came with the million selling hit "PARIS LATINO", by the Paris based French pop group "BANDOLERO" on Virgin Records France. Since then he has collaborated professionally with artists from such diverse countries as Spain, Morocco, France, Brazil, Argentina, England, and Equatorial Guinea, to name a few.

Benjamin returned to the US and studied music at Santa Monica College for a year before being offered a solo recording contract by Polygram Iberica (Spain). Subsequently, he continued his musical globetrotting, performing, and composing or co-composing over 45 titles released worldwide, mainly in the Spanish and French speaking markets, overall selling more than 3 million units, including his own1990 hit "YOU'LL NEVER FALL" from his Polygram Iberica solo debut CD "BENJAMIN", as well as, the mega Spanish language international hit "LOCOMIA" for the former WEA haute couture boy band of the same name.

Back in Madrid, during one of his TV promotions for the above mentioned single, Benjamin was offered the chance to host a new music program for teenagers on Television Española. In his new medium, as a television host/co-host for four years of such popular and loved music programs as 'PONTE LAS PILAS" and "LOS PRIMEROS", the Nikelodeon spin-off "ZONA DE JUEGO", or the Christmas specials "TELEPASIÓN", Benjamin was able to develop fully his on-camera personality. Benjamin also gained extensive international exposure in the Spanish speaking world as these programs were beamed worldwide via satellite on TVE Internacional (Televisión Española).

Benjamin has also co-starred in musicals, worked as a DJ for both radio and nightclubs, appeared in dozens of TV sketches, and has extensive experience in voice-overs and lead vocals for advertising.

Presently, after many years abroad, and with both the English and Spanish speaking markets in his sights, Benjamin has returned to the US and is currently composing and producing new material through which he strives to incorporate the cultural diversity that he has been exposed to over the last twenty years.

Now it's your turn to savor the first musical delicacies of Benjamin's forthcoming CD ...enjoy.
