Benjamin Booker is an American musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist. Booker’s got a new album out called Witness and because I’m a huge fan, I decided to give the man a call to ask him a bunch of questions like: What was it like touring with Jack White? How did he get to play on David Letterman? (Turns out he saw Letterman fall on face after the show…) What happened to his first backing band? How did he get Mavis Staples to collaborate with him. All that and much more. We also talk through the tracks of his new album Witness, out now on ATO Records, get it here.
To accompany the announcement of the album, Booker has written an essay detailing the experience that led him towards writing the album’s title song, which you can read here.
