About this item

Described by Clash Music as “one of America’s best songwriters”, Brendan Benson has consistently unfurled unparalleled melodies and lyrics in his acclaimed career. Over twenty years in, he’s still wowing folks and “Half a Boy, Half a Man” is a powerful dollop of power chords wrapped into a tale of split personalities. Backed with an astute cover of Jules Shear’s “Big Kid Face” from his 1989 album “The Third Party” in which Benson helps shine a light on this oft-overlooked but seminal songwriter.

Best known as half of the songwriting team at the heart of the Raconteurs (along with Jack White) Brendan Benson’s career has never slowed across six solo albums, two Raconteurs full-lengths, countless collaborations and placements and a seat as one of the most respected and reliable writer, performers, producer, engineer and musical jack-of-all-trades.
