Bennie Pearce is a musician/producer/songwriter and Philadelphia native. Bennie grew
up in North Philadelphia, immersed in an abundance of diverse music genre samplings.
His influences span from music of the 60s, 70s and 80s, ranging from jazz, blues and
soul to acoustic music, fusing his musical influences to the likes of Nat King Cole,
Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, The Carpenters, The Sound of Philadelphia, Weather
Report, Earth, Wind & Fire, Babyface and so many others. Bennie began playing
professionally as a bassist at the age of 15, playing with various local bands, as well as established house bands.
Bennie had always experimented with his hidden passion of songwriting and production,
but it wouldn’t materialize until his later years after high school and military service.
After 24 years of dedicated service to the U.S. Navy, Bennie retired in the Washington,
DC area and began playing with local bands. In 2018, Bennie performed at the Exit
Zero Jazz Festival in Cape May, NJ with the R&B band, Real Thyme and sharing the
event with “smooth jazz with the touch of cool jazz” trumpeter and headliner Chris Botti.
In 2010, Bennie founded Phillie-BOP Productions, a music production company focused
on returning to the future of “classic” music, serving as the premier destination for “The
Future Home of Classic Music.”
In 2020, Phillie-BOP Productions teamed up and launched its first international release
with singer/songwriter/independent recording artist Rina Chanel with debut hit single,
“Worthy,” on January 16. The single earned the No. #1 chart position on several music
charts, Spotify playlists and platforms. The continued partnership created follow-up
releases such as “More Than Enough” “Made” and “Sweetest of Melody” that have all
positioned at the #1 spot on various charts, as well as in the Top 10 and Top 20
