I'm a singer-songwriter based in Southeast Michigan. I approach my music with the belief that words should have meaning, and songs should speak to the listener.  I tend to write acoustic Americana songs that address social issues, life, and affairs of the human heart.  When I'm not writing, performing or recording, I'm pretty down to earth.  Loving family, a couple of dogs, the usual.  You'll find me performing throughout Michigan, the surrounding states, and Ontario from spring through just before Christmas, at events ranging from intimate performance to festivals, to house concerts, and anything in between.

Current News:

With the cold, dreary winter in full effect, my show schedule is paired back a bit.  I use the early 2018 for recording projects, songwriting, booking shows, and general career planning.  That said, I’ve got a few show dates on the calendar, both as a soloist, and with the folks of No Sin In Eden.  On 2/1, February Album Writing Month (FAWM) kicks off.  Rather than writing another ton of songs, I’m going to use this year’s challenge to write and produce music cues for tv, movies, commercials etc.  The occasional song intended for me may still pop up, as I’ve been writing a bit for NSIE, as well.

Recording continues for the NSIE debut EP, and my EP, Love Letters, as well as the much delayed holiday album.  With Christmas come and gone, the goal is to get it competed well in advance of the 2018 holiday season, and a planned release.

Looking Forward:

I'm now booking for the 2018 season and beyond. If you would like me to perform for your venue or event, please contact me at booking@stuartbenbowmusic.com.  I look forward to making your event a success.
