Benn Gunn The Aussie Bloke With Aussie Rock For Aussie Fans

  

Benn Gunn is a fair dinkum Aussie who rocks his live shows and Australian radio with his own fair dinkum Aussie songs.

He has charted multiple hits including the 2018 #1 "Only In Australia" which went on to break the record for the longest run in the Australian country singles charts and was ranked #2 in the 2019 whole year charts.

Other charting singles include the hilarious songs "We Can Be Mates", "I Got The Boat" and the 3 week #1 hit "Girls Like Guys With Trucks".

Late 2019 Benn released "Luckiest Man Alive" which reached #2 in 2019 and #1 in the 2020 singles charts.

Benn's rocking live shows have him in high demand as a performer playing nearly every major country festival in Australia including the Broadbeach Country Music Festival, The Deni Ute Muster, Tamworth Country Music Festival, The Norfolk Island Country Music Festival, The Devil Country Music Muster, The Boyup Brook Country Music Festival, the Gympie Music Muster, and many more.

With a swag of nominations and awards under his belt there is a wave of energy behind him with his highly active social media following...with over 49,000 followers to date and growing, 100,000 to 1,500,000 post views and 100,000 to 1,000,000+ video views a week.

Benn Gunn’s last album Only in Australia paid tribute to the supporters of home grown Aussie music, to our great country and all the true blue Aussies who make it great. It's Benn's own unique Aussie Heartland Rock with its roots in Australian pub rock, country rock, Americana, rock and roll and folk rock.
