Benedict. This indie pop singer-songwriter wunderkind is like no other. With a penchant for

lyrics and melody that feel like they enter through the bloodstream and permeate the soul, her

music transcends.


Growing up in a musical atmosphere, this Australian born artist eschewed a regular childhood

in pursuit of mastering multiple instruments. Nurtured by her mother, a gifted musician and

singer herself, Benedicts’ journey as a prolific songwriter started at the ripe age of five years

old.


Deepening her understanding and curiosity for musical paradigms, Benedict cut her teeth on

some of the greats. Delving into the storytelling and social advocate work of Joan Baez. Taking

inspiration from the iconic David Bowie’s musical transformations. Being mesmerised by the

jaw-dropping vocals of Janis Joplin to the brilliant performances of Queen and many more. All

of which have helped shape the cornerstones of Benedict’s own sirenic vocal stylings and

writing.


Benedict writes her songs purely inspired by heartbreak, love, social observation and justice

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.

Which, as it turns out, is one that echoes somewhere between adolescent Pink Floyd and late

night slow dancing with Prince.


Now with the release of her new debut single ‘Oh Fool’ on the 27th November and her intimate

single launch live at The Gasometer, Melbourne on the 11th December, Benedict is finally ready

to share her new powerhouse music with us!


This three and a half minute epic song ‘Oh Fool’ draws from the darkest depths of human

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.
