within our society today. These lived experiences translate into her deeply authentic art. After
many years writing and touring her own musical projects, as well as, time spent working behind
the scenes developing, producing and collaborating with other artists. Benedict took time out in
2018, sequestered away in a cabin in the mountains, writing and honing in on her new sound.

night slow dancing with Prince.

single launch live at The Gasometer, Melbourne on the 11th December, Benedict is finally ready
to share her new powerhouse music with us!

experience where pain inflicted by someone close to another breaks that soul through ego and
spite. Then, recognising the human spirits resilience and strength to heal. Rising up like an
eagle to claim one’s authentic self again and to not live in fear.
A truly humbling emotional rollercoaster, this artists eclectic variety of influences shines
throughout her powerful lyrics, progressive song structures and mesmerizing vocals. This song
will invoke courage into even the most broken down souls. This release is just one song
amongst a project of over thirty self-written and self-produced tracks that Benedict has written.
Stay connected and ready for the musical storm that is brewing and about to be
released by the one and only Benedict.
