KEVIN BENNETT and THE FLOOD
Kevin Bennett, well-respected indigenous Singer/Songwriter with Sydney Blues/Roots band The Flood, Aria nominee and 6 x CMAA Gold Guitar winner….2006 (with The Flood for Best Group), 2011(with Kasey Chambers for Vocal Collaboration), 2017 (with Bennett, Bowtell and Urquhart for Best Alternative Album and Best Group and in 2019 for Vocal Collaboration) and most recently, with The Flood (for Best Group) at the 2020 Gold Guitar Awards, writes relevant, contemporary Australian music containing elements of Country, Blues and Rock – telling stories of where he’s from and where he might be going, his past and his possible future….he sings his life.
The Flood has recorded 6 universally acclaimed albums including ‘The Ballad Of KB’, which was named in Iain Shedden’s Top Twenty Australian Country Albums of all time, while Rhythms magazine calls The Flood ‘the best Australian Roots band since The Dingoes.’
So whether it’s solo, with The Flood or Bennett, Bowtell & Urquhart, KB is still making music that needs to be heard.
The Flood line-up is KB (Vox/Guitar), Jeremy Edwards (Guitar/Vox), Wayne ‘Killer’ Kellett (Bass/Vox) and Mik McCartin (Drums/Vox).
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.
Rhythms magazine calls The Flood ‘the best Australian roots band since The Dingoes.’
