New Videos :)

Sam and I decided to record our rehearsals recently. We are sharing a couple of videos with you.
‘Are You Ready?’ and ‘Between The Walls’ are available for you to watch on my YouTube channel.

I haven’t been gigging with my band for a couple of years now, however Sam is still very much a part of my project, more so than ever. My new recording will see us collaborating lots. I’m finding it really fun writing for two vocals and can’t wait to show you more or what I am up to behind the scenes at the moment….

I hope you enjoy the videos,

My lovely backing singer and I had a rehearsal last week for our upcoming gigs and we thought – hey, why not share some of our prep with you ! So we video’s two songs ‘Between the Walls’ and ‘Are you Ready?’

I will be sharing these soon on good old YouTube so do keep checking back. Head over to www.facebook.com/jennabennettmusic to see a teaser !

I am busy teaching at the moment, working with lots of talented students this week. I feel very lucky to be sharing my love for music and helping others express themselves.

Having said that… I am VERY excited for half term where I will be doing more recording and writing !

See my gigs page for my upcoming shows.

New Demo available on Soundcloud

So I have spent the last couple of months finishing a new song that I have been writing called Between The Walls.

Today I thought.. ‘screw it, let’s share this already!’ So i set up garageband (yes I know, such a pro) and got out my SM58… and 8 hours later my ears bled and I settled with what I had done…..

I hope to go in the studio next year and can’t wait to get a solid and good quality version down, but for now – fill your boots 😛  I hope it can mean something to you all, as much as this one does for me xxx

New Website Coming :)

20130529-210205.jpg

Hello all  – oh how I miss you !! I thought it was about time I was in touch having had a busy, and very different couple of years. You’ll be pleased to hear that I am revamping my website which will have all the updates you need on what I have been up to !!

So the past 18months have been a bit different for me. I was not performing a lot due to going on a bit of a self-searching mission whilst studying my teacher training. A lot has changed for me, but I hope you will be pleased to hear that I was still writing and loving my music everyday, I have lots to share with you.

I am now a certified music teacher and I work with some incredible students who are very inspiring. In addition to these students, I run a choir in Hove called HOWL which is the highlight of my week. You know how much I love my harmonies right ?! I have also been busy beginning my career as a session singer too. I worked with Mon Frere on there first album and also with local singer/songwriter Luke Jones on his recent EP.

You will see that I stopped running my nights at The Quadrant after years of being an Open Mic Host and Promoter in Brighton. I hope to return to this but meanwhile I am enjoying attending different nights and being part of the musicians circle again 🙂

I am now setting up a new project so things are happening… and I will be back on the live scene again, I promise. xx

My new website is going to showcase all of this in detail so you can see and hear what I am up to, and it will also push you to get involved 🙂 I look forward to sharing it all with you.

Much Love to you all xx

Hostess of the Mostess !!

Jenna Bennet and Band The Hope (7 of 13)

I am fortunate enough to have a lovely job in which I get paid to listen to music and have a glass of wine…. !!

Here in Brighton and Hove, I have been hosting Open Mic nights and Acoustic Showcases for over 3 years. It’s one of my favourite things to do. I get to create an atmosphere, meet new musicians and comedians and have wonderful evenings spent singing, dancing, laughing, harmonising and jamming.

My babe is The Quadrant Open Mic which I run every Tuesday. I’ve been working with the Manager Jack for two years and we work hard and making the evenings fun!!

I also run the ‘Seattle Sessions’ showcases at Brighton Marina in Hotel Seattle every other Thursday. These are wonderful nights and a bit more special as the performers get to play full sets.

Please do contact me if you would like to join me one night, I always love having new people !
