Donny BenétDonny Benét
Konichiwa. Santorini. Working Out. These songs represent just a small taste of the enigma that is Donny Benét. Hailed and panned by critics as “Prince on a serious budget cut” Donny Benét is best described as the favourite nephew to Uncles Giorgio Moroder, Alan Vega and Michael McDonald. Residing in Sydney, Australia, Benét writes, performs and records entirely by himself at the renowned Donnyland Studios. Vintage synthesisers and drum machines are used exclusively to present Benét’s views on life, love and relationships through the power of song. Benét’s 2011 breakthrough album 'Don't Hold Back', confused and intrigued many, establishing him as a cult figure in the Australian music scene. The piece de resistance came in the form of the 2018 album The Don. Following singles 'Mr Experience', 'Girl Of My Dreams' & 'Second Dinner', Donny Benét has released his new album Mr Experience via Dot Dash Recordings / Remote Control Records. After humble lo-fi beginnings in the Australian art-pop underground, Donny Benét has expanded his cult-like following across the globe with a resonant array of danceable repertoire dealing with love and affection. Mr Experience marks a new chapter informed by a wealth of musical and personal development. A breakthrough set at the Pohoda Festival in 2018 led to constant international touring throughout 2018/19 with Donny building new audiences across Europe and the US. Don is joined by his band of professionals, The Donny Benét Show band when performing live.
