BenOaks is almost done mixing his upcoming BEAT TAPE called ‘Hieronymus’. Named after his first favorite artist.
“My mom would sometimes have to drop us off at the library as kids. She was a single mother living in a new state. She didnt have many friends yet. So she would drop me and my little sister off at the library when i was like 10, 11. I devoured those books. I developed a life long live of learning.”
“The first book I can remember being obsessed with was this book about art. I am a huge fan of Escher, Rembrandt, Pollock, Duchamp, Basquiat, Warhol, Goya, Mondrain, all the moderns. But the first art work that I was really drawn to was The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch. We have a piece of that in our restroom.”
‘Hieronymus’ is now available ONLY on Bandcamp until it hits all the streaming sites on 1/1/23
BenOaks also has two other albums due out Winter ’23: his feature-heavy “solo” reggae album called “LongSufferer” and the 3rd Bones Culture compilation featuring BenOaks’ collaboration work from 2020-now.

Last nite, Sat Nov 26th, was such a vibe! Amazing musicians & even better People came out to the Moose in West Chester, PA. A chill, members only, dive bar in the basement of the Elks. Surrounded by a super friendly, Cheers type wrap-around bar & pool tables & shuffle board. Comfy chairs & chess tables. We felt comfortable immediately. Warmly greeted by the booking agent / sound guy. We really dug deep & brought out our best ever performances! We will be doing another event this in Jan 2023. This will include afternoon songwriting, recording, artist development, drawing, painting, beat making & poetry workshops in the afternoon. Follwed by an open mic / cypher & finished by an early Variety / showcase performance- like 7pm – 10pm. Where we have 4, 5 acts – 20-30mins each. Hiphop lyricists, R&B/soul singers, singer/songwriters, poets / affirmations & standup comedy!
new spoken word artist Circumstantial Saint drops some sweet affirmations on our new GRIMEY banger featuring our fave lyricist / vocal & mix engineer 66notes. BenOaks created a MONSTER! Download ONLY on Bandcamp until it drops on all the streaming services on Thanksgiving!
Well “Don’t Ever Let Me” was supposed to drop on Thanksgiving but didn’t reach the streaming services until right before Xmas on 12/23/22
Announcing the debut album from the dynamic duo of affirmations & spoken word poet Circumstantial Saint & the notorious, polarizing, underground hiphop / electro / R&B / reggae recording artist BenOaks. Ben considers this album to be his “masterpiece. I can now die satisfied with my music career”.
66notes & BenOaks were in a triphop group called The Numinous. The Numinous released an EP & a full-length album CHAPTER ZERO. You can find them on Spotify, Apple, etc. After The Numinous disbanded, 66notes & BenOaks have continued as a dynamic duo releasing over 5 albums together in just about 10 years. Did you know THEY HAVE NOT yet met in person??
