Rhian Benson

Description:

?One of today?s brightest new talents: mould-breaking music straight from the soul? - USA TODAY With the help of Denmark?s finest rising new star production duo, Jonas Rendbo and Daniel Fridell, Rhian Benson released her much anticipated sophomore album - ?Hands Clean? in February 2011. The album redefines modern soul as the Mobo Award winner drapes her voice across a soulful collection of starkly pulsating electronic grooves. These confessional tales of love, loss and life represent a bold, new direction for this unique artist as she journeys beyond the ?Gold Coast?. Born in Accra, and raised in Wales, Ghana and India and the UK where she is now settled, Rhian grew up in a very musical environment. Her Welsh mother was an accomplished singer, and her father, an Ashanti naval officer, is a gifted guitarist. Rhian started playing piano at the age of nine and picked up guitar soon after and before long, a budding singer songwriter. The gifted songstress, musician and writer co-produced her debut album with Grammy Award-winning producers Bob Power (Chaka Khan, A Tribe Called Quest) and James Poyser (Lauryn Hill, D?Angelo). Rhian?s velvety and captivating voice which drew comparisons to many classic soul greats including Sade and Phyllis Hyman. In 2004, Gold Coast was released to strong international critical acclaim. Rhian?s self-penned debut single ?Say How I Feel? was a Top 10 R&B hit in the US and Top 30 in the UK national charts. Rhian was invited by BET in the US to host her own TV show series aptly entitled ?Gold Coast?- a first for a brand new British artist, it took her back to her home in Ghana and also saw her interview a wide range of celebrities from LL Cool J and Musiq Soulchild to Clint Eastwood! Rhian has a strong live following and has toured alongside artists ranging from R&B legend Brian McKnight, Angie Stone, Lemar, Raphael Saadiq, Anthony Hamilton to Macy Gray and Angela Bofill.
