Feature Artist: Benton Blount

Growing up in the mountains of North Carolina, Benton Blount never picked up a guitar or a microphone, much less played a tune. At age 18, his music pastor put a microphone up to his mouth and this beautiful voice was what came out and ever since Benton's had a burning passion for singing and writing songs. Signed with Golden Music who unfortunately closed it's doors unexpectedly in June 2010, this has left this incredible talent without a permanent home. He may be a big strong hulk of a guy with tattoos but don't let that throw you, his voice is even stronger than you might think from first glance. Benton is a prime example of why you shouldn't judge books by their covers, it's what's on the inside that counts the most. Tell everyone you know about Benton and his music, he's one of the rare natural, quality voices out there.

You can find Benton on Facebook, Myspace and Twitter.
