John Bennett with David Hyams
From Bidyadanga in WA’s remote Kimberley country, John Bennett has emerged as a singer/songwriter with an astounding ability to transport listeners to his home country and transcend cultural barriers.
John recently took home 2 SOTY awards (Best Regional and Best Indigenous) and nominations for ‘Male Artist of the Year ‘at the Deadly awards saw him listed amongst the likes of Gurrumul and Troy Cassar-Daley.
John met Fremantle based musicians David Hyams and Lucky Oceans in the recording studio and the three have been performing ever since. Both feature prominently on his second album “Country is Calling”, produced by David.
