From the wild windswept landscape of the deep Southwest of England comes a singer-songwriter with a power and excitement to match. Jenna Bennett, who is currently based in Brighton as a solo artist, has been writing songs since the tender age of 3. Jenna maps her progression through life in the words she sings and the gentle notes and slamming chords that emanate from her beloved guitar. Seeing Jenna perform is seeing her at her best as she shares her stories in an energetic, open and charismatic way. Her voice is intimate and emotive with songs born of the fragile aggression of someone who fights for her corner. Whether seen solo or supported by her backing vocalist, she’s a must for any song lover looking for a new fix.
