Day by Day music video release – please donate

Official Music Video for MIND Charity I am releasing this before the song is available on iTunes/spotify etc. (28th August) because I want the video to be an opportunity to raise awareness and support for the long term mental health effects of COVID19. If you watch, please donate to Mind if you can via my justgiving link below, we are all in this together. ❤ https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jenna-bennett-day-by-day This was a project that took over 3 months, working virtually with my producer, other musicians and my lovely students. The video was the first I have made and it features clips from my local ‘essential walks’ and lockdown home adventures. It has been so much fun and hard work but totally worth it. Thank you for watching, for more info head to my facebook: www.facebook.com/jennabennett music xx

One More Idea ??

I am so excited to release my next single, I am aiming for the end of the summer. Most of you will know this track, but I have been in the studio with my lovely friend Paul working on a nice new version of this and it is something I am super proud of.

Currently working on ideas for a music video, if you have any –  do share !!

2017 – I Thank you <3

What was 2017 for me?
* It was the making and release of City By The Sea single and video
* It was starting #jbmusicalmondays
* It was being a finalist in Open Mic UK singing competition and Future Music’s songwriting contest
* It was winning an award for my single ‘Sometimes’ my first official music video
* It was me becoming my own boss as a musician, choir leader and teacher
* It was performing at some amazing gigs in Brighton, London and Cornwall
* It was seeing Ani Difranco, Sublime and Kim Churchill live
* It was watching my fellow Brightonians rocking their own shows
* And, of course, it was all about the many collaborations with my darling, talented friends.

I feel so lucky to have worked with, and been supported by so many people this year. Wishing all my friends a wonderful Christmas and New Years and I’ll see you on the other side !!
BRING IT ON 2018 – more musical adventures ahead and IT’S GONNE BE A BIG ONE !! xxxxx

#jbmusicalmondays Episode 3 – Radioactive

 

It’s the third week of #jbmusicalmondays and today I am joined by my very dear friend Ricky (check out his band ‘Gallimore!!)

Ricky and I met in Brighton 8 years ago studying together at BIMM, we bonded over a mutual love of red wine, guitars and singing… (and a lack of lust to revise and study…)

Years on and we are still besties, both in music and as friends. Ricky and I love singing together and are ofter on the same bill at local gigs…. this is one of our favs to cover – Radioactive by Imagine Dragons.

I hope you enjoy, filmed in his lovely lounge by Hove station. xx
