Benny Elder is a singer and songwriter from Brisbane who has released several singles, the latest of which are ‘Longing for Change’ and ‘She’s Still Blowin’ in the Wind’.
Elder says of ‘Longing for Change’ that it ‘is for everyone out there that works themselves to the bone chasing big dreams, and a life they think is going to make them happy. It’s coming to the realisation that enjoying the journey is the most important part of the process, and trying to slow down and observe what’s around them before it’s gone is the secret to fulfilment.’
While music is Elder’s present, and he is fully immersed in it, it wasn’t his past: he’s a mechanical engineer by trade, and I asked him about that as well as his songwriting and singing. You can watch our chat on YouTube (below), or listen in Soundcloud (below) or on the podcast.
