My original version of my song "Always on my mind" didn't make the cut on the record Up Close. The song that I wrote for my wife to be at the time. I really loved it the time – and still do. And now it's got more that 750.000 views on YouTube. I recorded it with my favourite bass player NHØP. This song + another 7 songs ended up being my album to Bang & Olufsen as they started sponsoring me as the first artist ever. It turned into 6-7 great years of working together with Bang & Olufsen incl. concerts worldwide. This Bang & Olufsen album (Bang & Olufsen proudly presents Benni Chawes) also features Szhirley, Maria Montell, Bob Ricketts among other great musicians.
