Benji is the sixth full length record by Mark Kozelek’s Sun Kil Moon. The album was released February 11, 2014 and features guest musicians Steve Shelley, Will Oldham and Owen Ashworth. On August 20 of 2013, Mark Kozelek’s Caldo Verde Records released Mark Kozelek & Desertshore, the third record from Mark Kozelek and Phil Carney’s side project, Desertshore. 2013 also saw the release of Mark Kozelek Like Rats, 2 live albums, and the Mark Kozelek and Jimmy Lavalle’s collaboration, Perils From The Sea. Both Mark Kozelek & Desertshore and Perils From The Sea made Mojo’s top 100 best albums of the year.

In 2012, Mark Kozelek released an 18 track album under his Sun Kil Moon moniker, entitled Among The Leaves. Mark toured solo in support of the album and made his debit TV appearance on Fallon performing with The Roots.

In August of 2011, the film Mark Kozelek: On Tour was released via Caldo Verde Records. The film follows Mark on two different tours in support of the Sun Kil Moon release, Admiral Fell Promises, released in 2010. The album was played entirely by Mark Kozelek on nylon string guitar and includes 10 original songs. A limited EP entitled I’ll Be There coincided with the release. The 4 song EP includes 1 out-take and 3 covers, including the Jackson’s ‘I’ll Be There.’ On November 22, 2011, Desertshore’s second album was released. Mark Kozelek contributed vocals to 6 of the album’s 10 tracks.

In May of 2009 Caldo Verde released Mark Kozelek: Lost Verses – Live. The album was recorded in intimate, seated venues throughout the US and Europe in 2007 and 2008. This 14 song ‘best of’ collection features Red House Painters classic ‘Katy Song’ as well as several picks from the Sun Kil Moon catalog including ‘Carry Me Ohio’, ‘Lucky Man,’ and ‘Lost Verses.’

Other highlights include producing Take Me Home: A Tribute to John Denver; Retrospective, a two-CD collection featuring various rarities and live tracks alongside favorite RHP material; and appearing as an actor in Cameron Crowe’s critically acclaimed Almost Famous and Vanilla Sky.

    Among the Leaves and Benji are two of my go-to albums when I’m feeling nostalgic and it would be amazing to see the man behind the music. Also, I’d love to welcome a fellow Ohioan to the city!

    Huge Kozelek/SKM/RHP fan, coveting the chance to hear the songs live in my hometown.

    I’ve missed Mark on his last few visits as Sun Kil Moon. His first album blew me away and was a go to for many years. The following albums always impressed and it’d be wonderful to see the songs performed live and share with my husband, who hasn’t had as much exposure Mark’s sound.

    We’ve had a busy Fall with job changes and this would be a great way to have an evening out together enjoying some beautiful live music from Mark and his band.
