Benji Hughes lives in North Carolina but spends a lot of time in Los Angeles. For many years I've enjoyed his music but for one reason or another, I haven't been able to share it with our audience. He's finally released an EP, A Little Extreme, as a preview of what's to come. Today's top tune is the song "How Many Birds."
