reveals video for
‘Have You Seen My Son?’
Album Release August 15th
24-year-old New Orleans based singer-songwriter Benjamin Booker has premiered the video for his latest song ‘Have You Seen My Son?’. The clip, directed by Rick Alverson, shows Booker exploring the cells and grounds of a once active penitentiary prison in Virginia, US.
‘Have You Seen My Son?’ is taken from Booker’s debut, self-titled album, produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For The Riff Raff) and out via Rough Trade / Rhythmethod on 15th August.

Blazing guitars, gutty vocals, powerful drumming — not to mention some serious background “woo hoos” — make this a song to beat this summer for sheer energy and fun.
The song is ferocious and danceable, and this 22-year-old New Orleans native may have just schooled the rest of us on what’s really cool.” – NPR
“A rush of raw blues-rock abandon” –Q Magazine
“Rampaging, infectious, and a voice that melds the juvenile and the world-weary” –Guardian
“A properly tasty, garage cooked riot” -Classic Rock Magazine“
“He likes to leave the rough edges intact, bringing to mind the houserockin’ records that Hound Dog Taylor once did for Alligator Records in the ’70s.” – American Songwriter
“It might look like just two people onstage but Benjamin Booker’s voice surely counts as a band member in its own right. Soulful and sandpaper-rough…” – The Guardian
“he takes the ripped, raw racket of The Dirtbombs and smothers it in fuzzy, inherently moody-sounding riffs that recall The Gun Club and T Rex in equal measure.” – NME
