Biography Timeline


Tench played piano from an early age. His first recital was at age six. After discovering the music of The Beatles, he ended his classical piano lessons and focused on rock and roll. At age 11, he met Tom Petty for the first time at a Gainesville music store. Petty and Tench played together as members of The Sundowners in 1964. The Tench family's garage was a frequent practice site for the band on evenings when Tench's father was not present. Tench's mother enjoyed having the boys there, but would check with the neighbors to make certain the music was not disturbing them.


Songs written by Tench and recorded by other artists include "You Little Thief", a top 5 UK and Australian hit for Feargal Sharkey in 1985, and "Never Be You" (co-written with Petty), which became a #1 US Country hit for Rosanne Cash, also in 1985. Tench has received two ASCAP songwriting awards: in 1995 for "Stay Forever" (performed by Hal Ketchum) and in 2001 for "Unbreakable Heart" (performed by Jessica Andrews). This was also recorded by Carlene Carter in the early 1990s. He also wrote songs for Kimmie Rhodes ("Play Me A Memory") and Lone Justice ("Sweet, Sweet Baby (I'm Falling)").


In 1991, Tench married Canadian model Courtney Taylor. They divorced in late 1999. In 2015 Tench married his second wife, author Alice Carbone Tench. Benmont and Alice welcomed their first daughter, Catherine Gabriella Winter, on December 16, 2017.
