July 2018 sees composer and songwriter Bennett Bay perform at the Analog Room's intimate OutIn series. Inspired by pastoral imagery and everyday experiences, Bennett builds delicate emotional and cinematic soundscapes around his songs with a rooted sensibility in folk songwriting. Also a member of post-rock trio Hauste, Bennett's musical ability reflects his confidence in stringing melancholy, meditative and adventurous emotions together.
Bennett has turned heads with his standout performance at Mosaic 2017, as he shared music off his debut album 'Compass' backed by a 10-piece ensemble. He will be supporting Hanging Up The Moon's album launch later this July at the Esplanade Recital Studio with an opening performance, and will be launching his second album in September 2018 at the Recital Studio as well. Join us in the lead up as Bennett showcases his talent with the acoustic guitar, backed by a glockenspiel and violin in the Analog Room on July 21st.
