monster dancehall / reggae album ‘HIERONYMOUS’
“it’s FINALLY READY! my monster of a mega album which has consumed my creative life the past 9 months is FINALLY READY to SHARE! 🤯😍
this album has taken me about 9, 10 months, which is like 5x longer than any other recent album of the past few years
this album honors two of my biggest influences:
& reggae / dancehall / maroon culture
the past few years m musical journey has been mixing trap beats with soul & reggae elements
these instrumentals were made during my daily beat meditations
they are a bit too busy for vocal collaborations
so i release them for your enjoyment & enlightenment :)”
warm up like a “Summer’s Day”
Rad music blog Death or Desire gave a truly incredible review of “Summer’s Day” – a spoken word + jazz collaboration between our cofounder & creative director BenOaks & new lyrical artist LEE MORR.
“a beautiful blend of spoken word and jazz that captures the essence of a lazy summer day spent with a lover. It’s a must-listen for fans of Jazz Fusion and those who appreciate the art of spoken word.”

BenOaks presenta el sencillo “Summer’s Day” ft Lee Morr (EE.UU.)
LOVE from ARGENTINA from R mas!
El músico estadounidense BenOaks presenta el sencillo “Summer’s Day” con la colaboración de Lee Morr, una interesante pieza que navega entre el spoken word y el jazz, con una personalidad tranquila, este sencillo es un detonador de emociones desde los primero segundos, la influencia del jazz abona un dinamismo sólido que alimenta a la perfección a la voz, es la linea vocal un protagonista natural por la fuerza interpretativa pero sobre todo por ser el conducto de la palabra, una track que roba la atención y no la suelta a lo largo de sus casi tres minutos de duración; Sobre la colaboración el artista apunta:

Warm up this Valentine’s like a “Summer’s Day”
“Summer’s Day” is the first song collaboration between BenOaks & LEE MORR.
BenOaks remembers “We met about 5 years ago when I was still partying & doing drugs. He protected a woman who he didn’t even know. I always remembered that. We ran into each other a few times since then. He always asked if I was making new beats. I took a few years off while I got sober. So when we ran into each other at a spoken word / poetry event last summer hosted by an artist who is a mutual friend, it renewed our friendship. We have been hanging out a lot since then at my studio I share with two other incredible artists. One a fine artist. Painter / print maker / carpenter Darren Jordan. Another a fashion designer- Bird aka BirdUpProductions. We have been doing shows all together this Winter. Our 3rd event all together is this Saturday in Lancaster, Pennsylvania where we all live.”
