Benjamin Zięć is a singer-songwriter from Nottingham that has appeared and featured in a multitude of bands and acts. Throughout his musical career he has performed alongside acts such as Fat Freddys Drop, Gentlemans Dub Club, Sam Smith, Dizzee Rascal and Jake Bugg on line-ups and festivals around the U.K. and Europe such as Boomtown Festival, No Tomorrow Festival, Wireless Festival, Soundwave Festival, and Splendour Festival.

Going back to the roots of his musical composition, it is only now that the artist has finally got round to recording and releasing his first debut Ep 'Fallen Leaves', under the alias of Benjamin Zięć.

Backed by a superstar lineup of familiar Nottingham-based musicians, Benjamin Zięć & The Rarebreeds combined present a raw, edgy sound blending genres such as Folk, Blues and Grunge. Launched in July on independent record label Phlexx Records, to a sell out Nottingham-based crowd at Peggy's Skylight, the Fallen Leaves Ep has received local and national radio airplay and saw the group embark on a tour dates in London, Nottingham, Sheffield, Leicester and Poznán (Poland).

“Benjamin Zięć has a special gift at captivating people, he seems to be able to draw an audience together from the first note of every performance, bringing a magical silence to any crowd” - Cate Grundy (Phlexx Records)

“An eclectic mixture of people and instruments, including drums, piano, double bass and two violins. His deep and rusty voice sounded great with the bluesy folk music of The Rarebreeds, the combination resulting in a twangy grungy feel.” - Elizabeth O’Riordan (LeftLion Magazine Nottingham)
