Hailing from the deep south, Benjamin Clark began playing the piano at the tender age of two years old. Within a few months, it was clear to Benjamin’s piano instructor that he had a prodigy on his hands.

At the age of 12, when most young boys are pursuing sports and academics, Benjamin was performing on stages in New York and later at 16, he had his own nine-piece band. Generating sizable buzz, the piano prodigy began performing with 1950s Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Lloyd Price. Best known for his authentic New Orleans sound and hits including “Stagger” and “Personality,” Lloyd took a liking to Benjamin and the two formed a lasting friendship.

Following high school, Benjamin continued performing on stages with acts including Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, The Coasters, The Tempetations, Little Richard and the Isley Brothers just to name a few. At the age of 24 Benjamin wrote arrangements, conducted and performed at Carnegie Hall with a 21 piece all star orchestra that included many arrangers and musicians that he admired as a kid.

Expanding his repertoire and status within the record industry, Benjamin began to pursue executive and managerial opportunities and later served in multiple promotional, direct marketing and A&R positions for several prestigious record labels including CBS, PolyGram, Warner Brothers, RCA, Macola and Brunswick Records. Under his creative and business direction, Benjamin worked with a host of artists including Jackie Wilson, Chi-Lites, Larry Graham and Dr. Dre. In addition, Benjamin also co-founded Devel Records with industry heavyweight Clive Davis.

Clearly a major force in the record industry, Benjamin’s resume reads like a Grammy nomination list and his talent is undeniable.
