Here’s what critics have said about Ripples of Thunder releases so far:
– “Benji and the Saltwater Sound System is pure listening bliss” – Happy Mag
– “It’s painfully catchy and demands a repeat listen.” – AAA Backstage
– “Gentle vocals and provocative lyricism with warm, reggae guitar and tight drumming.” – The MusicLinks:
Since their recent formation Benji and the Saltwater Sound System have hit the shore running. The group’s original tunes have matured quickly after being exposed to audiences at a snowballing number of live shows and high profile festivals slots.
Benji and the SSS fuse pacific flavours with the raw sounds of the Australian East Coast. Add to this beautifully poignant lyrics and skillfully blurred genres and you have a sonic snapshot of the current South Coast NSW coastal lifestyle.
Benji and the Saltwater Sound System have had the honour of playing at acclaimed festivals including; Woodford, the National Folk Festival, Mitchell Creek Rock N’ Blues, the Dreaming Festival, Granite Town, Peak Festival, Palm Creek, Sydney Blues Festival, and Illawarra Folk Festival just to name a few.
