Filmmaker-Musician Benjamin Dean Wilson has released Smartest Person in the Room, a witty look at society and what makes us tick.
On his new album The Smartest Person in the Room Benjamin Dean Wilson is a multi-tasker.
Wilson plays all the instruments and produces music that takes the listener back in retro style old school, while moving the sounds ahea. He has assembled a collection of songs that is a wry look at life and what makes us tick.
The filmmaker-musician took the time to do it the old school way. He recorded the album in analog using a Tascam 1/2-inch tape deck.
‘Talkin Blues and Musical Theater Style’
On Smartest Person in the Room, Wilson blends “talkin’ blues” style with musical theater and film style to produce a pictorial essay of songs that anyone will understand.
Wilson’s main job has been as camera assistant on commercials. He made short 16-millimeter films and then found his desire to work in music overpowering.
Small Talk was his first album.
