For many years, Bene has been writing, producing and performing Synth centred Ambient Dubbed-up Prog Rock with his long term Sembalance project.

Then on hitting the ½ Century, a novelty birthday present (one with 10 holes and 20 reeds) initiated a radical shift from the electronica to something much more organic.

The Harmonica was incorporated immediately into the experimental electro-soundscapes, but then soon developed into a real passion for the Diatonic Harmonica, playing in a Rock and Roll covers band, Open mic/Jam Nights, guesting in various bands, playing solo festival sets, and Busking on the Street, in the Mountains, by the Sea or anywhere that the opportunity arises.

March 2016, and Yonberg No 1 arrived with Bene, which also marked a push to develop his solo/busking act, the comfortable power of the D2 being key to this, shaping the sound and pushing what can be achieved with little more than a Harmonica, a microphone and a sturdy pair of boots.
