Album Notes
His name is Bob Benjamin, born of a Costa Rican mother and an American father. His first CD, “Do You Know”, was mostly recorded in Costa Rica by his production company, Traveling Light Music.
The music of the movies was an early influence for Bob, who grew up in 1950s and 60s Santa Ana, Orange County, California- Hollywood's backyard, where his athletic abilities in high school and college were pointing to a professional baseball career. His mother, Maria Violeta Zúñiga Campos, thought of life as one big Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers movie and together she and young Bob watched the musicals of the 1930s and 40s, although The Beatles were the main musical influence in his youth. His music and voice are compared more to a mix between Cat Stevens and Neil Diamond.
Bob moved to Costa Rica in 1999 after performing for years in Cambria, California in search of a more tranquil life and the opportunity to sing and write more songs. Since then, and equipped with only his smooth voice and his guitar, he has been charming audiences all over the country.
Upon arriving in Costa Rica, he was lucky to meet Roberto López and Alvaro Esquivel, a music promoter and a producer respectively, who opened doors so that he could perform at The Grand Hotel, the Jazz Café, La Cava in Escazú, and the Marriott Hotels. Later, he tried his luck on the beaches of Tamarindo, Flamingo, Brasilito, Panamá, Potrero, Ocotal and Hermosa where he sang regularly at such venues as the Four Seasons Resort, the Best Western Crazy Monkey Bar Tamarindo, Cala Luna, the Happy Snapper, the Flamingo Marina Resort, Giardini Resort, Pasatiempo, Father Rooster, the Beach Club, the Upper Deck, Florblanca Resort in Playa Santa Teresa, San Jose and Lake Arenal.
He has recently returned to the U.S. where he continues to perform, write, and record.

Do you Know
I love the Song "Do You Know" So uplifting, especially the Bass part. It's almost as if Bob & the Bass player
had played together for years in some obscure town where the ocean meets the pines.

Something to cherish, a nice variety of musical sounds on this CD
I love this CD and never get tired of hearing it! The love songs are sincere and sweet without being sappy and the rock songs are catchy and fun with thoughtful lyrics. The CD is very well produced...Bob's voice is gorgeous and there are lots of interesting musical background touches like chimes, waves, strings and angelic voices adding a light, magical quality to the rock guitar format. love it love it love it!

Going to Costa Rica? Go hear Bob Benjamin!
You can't go to Costa Rica and not go hear Bob Benjamin! The man will rock and serenade you with passionate melodies right out of his heart! His rock'n roll has been filtered, aged and mellowed in the land of 'Pura Vida' and it's sooo sweet! Track him down... ask around...once you hear him you'll not soon forget him! Bob leads the life we all wish we could: he is a master craftsman: his tools are his voice and his guitar. Don't miss him!!

this emotional, romantic song is a typical example of the fine music written and sung by bob benjamin. he shows insight, creativity and and sensitivity, particularly in this song. however, one should hear the entire album to understand the depth and talent of this very gifted musician.wonderful lyrics, great voice!!
