Benbrick is a Platinum selling songwriter, producer, composer & artist.
Benbrick recently met Ricky Gervais after his original music interwoven with scenes from Derek received 600k plays in 2 days. Ricky Gervais called him “a future genius” and his music “stunningly beautiful”.
In 2014 Benbrick wrote Gasoline with Troye Sivan. The EP TRXYE reached #1 in 66 countries selling 80,000 records in the US alone. Gasoline has been streamed 11 million times on Spotify and described by Troye as “the one that is the most personal”.
In 2012 Benbrick wrote a track with Japanese superstar Utada Hikaru. It was used as the end credits theme in the hit movie Evangelion 3.0. Through this collaboration he met Goetz B (Faithless, Bjork, Dido) who would end up mixing his debut EP Closer | Closure. The EP is a heartbreakingly honest and modern take on the break up record with sparse but dynamic production framed by haunting vocals and intense lyrics. It has drawn comparisons to Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie.
Benbrick’s own classical piano version of the million selling Sakura Nagashi now has 550,000+ views and highlights his talents as a pianist. As EARMILK said “he has a plan for success, but not one that involves greed or excessive advertising and promotion. It’s more like a movement, driven by his mission to be heard.”
