Benji's Palace


(Pōneke / Wellington)

Welcome to Benji's Palace! Home to a solo musical venture from Wellington-based musician Ben Gibbons. Benji's Palace is not a real place, but that shouldn’t stop you from having a look around. Enjoy your stay!


In much the same way that a palace has many rooms, Benji’s Palace is where Ben’s influences, feelings, thoughts, opinions, shortcomings and triumphs come together and share a space. The music draws on themes of self awareness, restraint, desires and inhibitions. After his recent release of single ‘Event Horizon’, Benji’s Palace has big plans for 2022 - full of collaboration, proliferation and experimentation. Benji’s Palace is represented today by Ben Gibbons and Markus McCraith, with his cajon and bag of tricks. We hope you enjoy your tour of the palace!
