City By The Sea
City By The Sea is my new single released on the 16th August 2017. Available to buy on iTunes and other online platforms. This video was filmed by Rosie Powell who did an incredible job capturing the energy and creativity that this City brings. Enjoy xx
Crazy Little Thing Called Love (Jenna Bennett & Friends) – Cover
I am joined here by my good friend Si Gray on a sunny day in Hove. Rock’N’Roll has always been a big part of my life, I adore singing it – Si is also a big fan, and surely… everyone loves Queen right ? xx
‘One More’ is about being in a place where you need to make changes. When I wrote this, I was exhausted working as a full-time teacher in a college, seeing a guy that I didn’t feel was right for me and having very little time to be creative and enjoy my friends and family. A few months later, I left my job and became self-employed in the music industry, I fell in love with my life, was able to have time, energy and inspiration to release City By The Sea and spend lots of times with those I adore … the times where we are lost are important to find our way – always listen to yourself and take risks!!
Maybe This Time (Jenna Bennett & Friends)
Filmed Oct 2018. This track is a cheeky little love song. It is about the night I bumped into an old friend at a bar. This guy was someone who asked me out years ago, but at the time I said no. After years of dating other people, heartbreak and growing my independence, something was different when I saw him this night and I just knew it was time to give it a go. So I did. Maybe This Time tells the story of that night, the lush feeling of wanting someone and the thought of letting go… ‘Maybe this one will be the one’…..
Nothing I Want More (Jenna Bennett & Friends)
A little love song of mine, performed with my dear friend Lisa Wadham – recorded after a chocolate cake breakfast ! Lisa was one of the first musical friends I worked with up here about 7 years ago. We’ve written, arranged, performed and recorded together on various different projects !! This is an original of mine that we used to sing together. I hope you enjoy x x x
Radioactive (Jenna Bennett & Friends) – Cover
Meet one of my dearest friends Ricky Gallimore. Ricky and I met when I moved to Brighton eight years ago, we have stayed best buds ever since. We regularly jam, write and gig together so we thought it was about time we shared one of our tracks we adore singing. Check out Ricky’s band GALLIMORE !!!!
Flame (Jenna Bennett & Friends)
Meet my talented best bud and Brother-in-law Trev. Trev and I used to be in a band together called Es Vedra many years ago and this was one my songs that we used to gig. Here we are at my parents in Looe, Cornwall having a reminisce. The days in Es Vedra were so much fun, we had a crazy time gigging in fields, driving around Cornwall in our van and writing constantly. Special days. You can check out Es Vedra here or check our Trev’s Soundcloud !!
Another original track. Golden Butterfly is about finding your self-worth after heartbreak. It’s ten years old, another track I used to record in my old band Es Vedra. This video is recorded whilst having a jam at my friends house in Cambridge… performed after a few glasses of bubbly. Enjoy xx
Sleeping Beauty (Jenna Bennett and Friends – LIVE!)
A live performance at Fiddlers Elbow, Brighton. The gig was at the 2017 Fringe Festival and I’m joined here by Sam Black and Lisa Wadham. The three of us used to gig a lot together and it is always a pleasure to share the stage with both of them. Lisa sang harmonies on by Behind My Eyelids EP back in 2012, have a listen here !! You will still see Sam gig with me a lot these days and she is the lead backing singer on my single ‘City By The Sea’.
Ever-After (Jenna Bennett & Friends)
‘Ever-after’ is about the ups and downs of dating. It’s a nice angsty one (!) that expresses the joys, experiences, frustrations and hopes of falling in love through the (perhaps somewhat forced) use of dating aps. Ultimately the song hints towards ignoring those niggling feelings of being single and to focus on embracing your life, rather than searching for more – cause you may not actually be lost ! 🙂
Pollyanna by Nathalie Gunnarsson (Jenna Bennett & Friends)
What a gorgeous, sunny weekend it was in Brighton !! I spent my Saturday morning with this darling girl. Nathalie is an incredible singer/songwriter and one of the most inspiring musicians I know. She had me over at 9am for pancakes, chocolate coffee and musical adventures. After lots of giggling and outtakes we managed to get a video of us singing one of her tracks, thanks for having me Nathalie x x
