KEVIN BENNETT and THE FLOOD
Kevin Bennett, well-respected indigenous singer/songwriter with Sydney roots band The Flood, 5 time CMAA Gold Guitar winner (with The Flood and Bennett, Bowtell and Urquhart) and Aria Blues and Roots nominee in 2006 (with The Flood for Best Group), writes relevant, contemporary Australian music containing elements of Blues, Rock, Folk and Country – telling stories of where he’s from and where he might be going, his past, present and future….he sings his life.
The Flood has recorded 5 universally acclaimed albums including ‘The Ballad Of KB’, which was named in Iain Shedden’s Top Twenty Australian Country Albums of all time. The band has performed at the Byron Bay Bluesfest, The Dreaming Festival, Gympie Muster, Narooma Blues Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival and are regulars at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
Their new work, ‘Blood Red Ties’ is concerned with family, roots, country and ALL the ties that bind. It speaks to, and is informed by, the Australian landscape and the people of this wide, brown land.
The current line-up is KB (Vox/Guitar), Wayne ‘Killer’ Kellett (Bass/Vox), Gary Carruthers (Guitar, Banjo, Mando, Harmonica/Vox) and Mik McCartin (Drums/Vox).
Rhythms magazine calls The Flood ‘the best Australian roots band since The Dingoes.’
Jessica Wishart is a young Bidjara woman whose songs take elements of country, folk and soul music and weave them into deeply personal tales.
