HELLO WORLD!


My name is Freya Bennett and I am a musician from Melbourne.
I have 8 very special songs that I would like to share with everyone and put on my first album!

A little background of me:

I started playing piano when I was 8 ( I never practiced.)
I then took up the saxophone which I loved ( I practiced a lot, noisily!)
I started taking piano lessons again when I was 15 (this time I practiced.)

In 2009, I received my Bachelor of Music Performance from the Victorian College of the Arts. Since graduating I have been honing my skills collaborating with film makers, actors, playwrights and dancers. I have enjoyed these collaborations very much but it’s time to have a project of my own!

The project:

The Marvellous Reject Girl.

This album will have 8 tracks.
My style is very eclectic as I have a passion for both instrumental music and vocals.
The music I create comes from the heart and is often written late at night when I can’t sleep.
The kind of thing you can expect to hear on my album can be found on my SoundCloud and my Triple J Unearthed page:

People I will be working with:

Jarred Doueal- Jarred recorded, mixed and produced (as well as lending his voice for harmonies and his guitar skills!) my song ‘Emily’ and 'The Tiger'. Working with a great producer is very important so as to get exactly the sound you want. Jarred's style matches exactly what I want and I look forward to recording the rest of the album with him!
Sophie Pellegrini- Amazing American photographer who has been featured in Yen magazine. I contacted Sophie to see if she was interested in collaborating and doing some pieces for the album! She was and I am so excited to have her onboard!

Josh Yu- Josh has been helping me with photos of myself for promotion. His work is Exquisite and I am so happy he is onboard!
