“Darin Bennett represents the new breed of the old school singer/songwriter/guitarist . He uses a combination of slide guitar driven, gritty delta blues, with elements of both modern and classic rock and soul. He tops it off with a powerful voice that rises from a mysterious whisper to a raging growl. His influences range from Tom Waits, Eric Clapton and Chris Whitley, to Son House, Otis Redding and Nick Cave”.
A blisteringly hot and dusty Rock/Blues saga, Darin Bennett beefs up this three dimensional road-trip with a superb muti-panoramic video extravaganza. The lead track Holdin` Me is loosely supported by a glorious bluegrass riff that trickles alongside a pounding bass and percussion combo, this stuff is as adhesive as steaming hot tarmac. Darin has the track up for free download, the `Midnight Storybook` EP can also be purchased from the Buy link below.
“He is now at work with his new band DARIN BENNETT AND THE REQUIEM, which includes bassist Gerrod Miskovsky, guitarist Redbone, drummer Cosmo Jones, and an impressive lineup of wandering musicians including Geoffrey Michael Brandin and Eugene Toale”.
