About:

In March 2001, singer-songwriter Leslie Benson founded Burning Veda, an alt-rock band from Dayton, Ohio, with folk and blues influences, which debuted in a concert at Wright State University’s Rathskeller. The group eventually performed live for Wright State’s Battle of the Bands at the Ervin J. Nutter Center, on a stage once graced by Cher, Lynyrd Skynyrd and others.

Burning Veda played its final show together during the 2002 Dayton Band Playoffs at the Canal Street Tavern in Dayton, Ohio, three years before Benson moved to Indiana, and then eventually to Nashville, TN.

PRESS REVIEW:
“While Burning Veda’s sound draws to mind the contemporary sounds of 10,000 Maniacs, Lucinda Williams and The Cowboy Junkies, there’s a lot of old-time wisdom in it as well. It’s an emphatic departure from the nouveau garage-rock ‘flavor of the moment.’” – Impact Weekly
