With Lyrical/ Vocal Influences of Bob Dylan & a guitar style inspired by John Butler, James Bennett is the ultimate blend of these artists.
James Bennett has been non stop touring the country, writing, recording & performing for the last eight years.
Now with three albums under his belt, he shows no signs of stopping any time soon! In fact, you could say he’s only just getting started.
Having just finished the recording album number four (set to be released in the first half of 2021), things are only looking busier!
James is now back to doing what he does best… playing live!
Not here to count the legs on a centerpiede, he is one of the hardest working independent Australian musicians going right now! Playing across the country for just about every weekend since 2011 (bar 2020) this shows in his performances.
Incorporating six string & twelve string guitars, Weissenborn lap steel, banjo, ukulele, stomp box, harmonica & a voice up to eight times smoother than the smoothest honey, there’s a lot to look forward to.
Don’t miss your chance to see James on tour in your neck of the woods!
Over the years James has warmed up the stage for much loved Australian artists such as Diesel, Jeff lang, The Whitlams, Wendy Matthews, Ian Moss, The Black Sorrows, Vika & Linda Bull, Mental As Anything, Rick Price & Dan Sultan.
This impressive list also extends to some well know international artists like Newton Faulkner (UK) & Canned Heat (USA).
James has graced the stage at many festivals across the country over the years as well including ‘Sydney Blues & Roots Festival’, Airlie Beach Festival of Music’, ’Grow your Own’, ‘Wingham Akoostik Festival’, ‘Festival of the Sun’ & ‘Wildwood’ just to name a few! James Bennett is proudly endorsed by Cole Clark Guitars, Grand Flavour Clothing, Wild Dog Stomp Boxes & D’Addario strings.
