I AM BACK

It has been seven years since Oscar Benton said a final farewell to his musical career. In 2018, the 'white blues king' is making his comeback with a brand new album named I Am Back. The album was recorded together with Barrelhouse-guitarist Johnny Laporte at the nursery home Benton is living since he suffered serious brain damage in 2008.

The idea behind 'I Am Back' came as a surprise as Johnny Laporte reveals: "It's early February 2016 when Oscar is throwing his birthday party. People are talking, drinking and music is being made. Suddenly Oscar stands up and sings this beautiful version of Sinatra's My Way. I am speechless. Everybody is speechless and surprised he is still able to do this. After this party, I visited Oscar every week. We transformed a room in his nursery home to a studio where we recorded songs. Before we new it we recorded a full album together. It was amazing!"

The fire in Oscar Benton's heart is still alive and on his new album 'I Am Back' he shows that he is not ready to retire yet!
If you want to download the lyrics of the album, you're welcome!
