Benji Kirkpatrick & The Excess

Upbeat bouzouki-infused roots music for today. Benji Kirkpatrick & The Excess head off on their debut album release tour this September.

After being at the heart of big band folksters, Bellowhead, Benji enlists fellow ex-Header Pete Flood on drums with Pete Thomas (Megan Henwood and Jackie Oates) on bass to stir up raucous riffs and potent songs.

With Benji leading on bouzoukis – electric and acoustic – and guitar, the band stoke up rhythm’s, riffs and uproarious, soaring melodies; sometimes cacophonous, sometimes stark and raw, sometimes sensitive, always powerful.

Whilst being at the heart of various successful bands, big band folk trailblazers Bellowhead, power folk trio Faustus, and the Seth Lakeman band, Benji was making plans and writing material for his own project, which now takes form. Opting for the classic power trio line up, Benji’s writing is brought to life with this fresh, vibrant sound and is propelled in an exciting new direction.
