Johnny Bennett is one of those rare, but highly sought after artists – the breed of singer/songwriter who has a lifetime of experience and wisdom that permeates the meaning and sentiment of every song he writes.
Having lived in San Francisco, New York and now Los Angeles, Johnny is influenced by varied walks of life, adding a precious depth and quality to his work.
From a young age Johnny knew that he could sing and had a voice. It took an exit from his classical background and several years of slowly teaching himself to play the guitar for that voice to have a platform. “I just couldn’t sit still to save my life in my 20’s, it was all just a constant blur with very little achieved”.
A raw, honest and talented performer delivering pockets of awesome music with every song he performs, Johnny Bennett has had the pleasure of opening for the likes of Pat Benatar, The Doobie Brothers, Spoon, Dr. John, Maceo Parker, Simple Minds and Lynyrd Skynyrd. He is currently gearing up for UK and US tours in 2012 along with the production of the follow-up to Gone Missing titled 40 Love.
“I have very much enjoyed working with Johnny Bennett on our ongoing and upcoming projects. He is organized, communicative and has great empathy for independent artists navigating the music industry today.”
