Premiered on MAXIM
Fresh off appearances at this year's SXSW, Texas born singer/songwriter Ben Burgess recently premiered the official video for his single, "Party Like a Pornstar" on Maxim.com. The humorous poolside clip is Burgess' debut video and features lots of pretty girls and fake mustaches. The track appears on his recently released mixtape, which is available for a free download on his official site.
With influences ranging from Frank Zappa and John Coltrane to Bob Marley and G Love, Burgess describes his mixtape as "swampy, southern, soulful, shagadelic, good music. It's just like Mom's home cooking." The young singer got his start playing 6th Street clubs in Austin, and was later hooked up with the Jonas Brothers who recorded his song "Chillin’ in the Summertime."
Burgess has since moved to Los Angeles and is working with Grammy nominated producer Kevin Kadish (Jason Mraz, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Hicks) and Mark Batson (Jay-Z, Eminem, 50 Cent). ”Every day I’m re-inventing the way I write songs," he says. "As long as I can survive and get by and play music for a living, I’ll be alright.”
