Profile Benny Hester is a music artist and songwriter. He is best known for his songs “When God Ran” and “Nobody Knows Me Like You” and for producing the groundbreaking “tween/teen” music driven, sketch comedy and dance television series Roundhouse on Nickelodeon. With a balance of synth-driven rockers and white knuckle power ballads, Benny Hester’s sound reminds me of John Waite or Stan Bush in the 80s. Naturally then, this Perfect album is perfect for fans of classic AOR, and the drumming of Jeff Porcaro of Toto certainly doesn’t hurt either. Christian rockers into Rick Cua, Allies and David Meece will also want this record close-at-hand at all times. Not my favorite work of Hester cause the cliches are abundant and the melodies so, well, average…
