Born and raised in a little village on the Essex/Suffolk borders, Dominic Benjamin started his musical adventures fronting punk rock bands. After years of touring around the UK and Europe as the frontman of a band, Dominic Benjamin took a step into the unknown on his own in 2018.
“Suffering For You" was written during my time at the Dawson City Music Festival’s Songwriter in Residence in the Yukon. The song was inspired by the story of a group of people who were separated from their expedition, trapped on an ice floe in the arctic for months.
