Born in Kentucky and based in Nashville, TN, Albert Benedict Oberst began recording music as Benedict in 2019. He has been championed by American Songwriter, detailing his songwriting as the most important factor to his expression. “I noticed that when I came out, it not only changed my life but my writing, too. That was the turning point when I really started to hone in on my craft and songwriting.”
Benedict’s music lives in the world of modern indie, as well as being largely inspired by the songs he loved growing up in the late 1990s and early 2000s. With an unapologetic open heart, his roots are in tangible storytelling. Benedict released his debut EP “All I Ever Did Was Love You” in 2021, following up with “Anywhere” that landed on Spotify’s ‘Fresh Finds: Pop’ editorial playlist. He is currently working on his next EP.
