Donny Benet Bio
Donny Benét is an Australian recording artist, based in Sydney. He is notable for his anachronistic musical style, borrowing heavily from 80s post-disco sounds. In 2011, he released his debut studio album ‘Don't Hold Back’, receiving praise for his sincere take on 80's pop music. In March 2020, Benét announced the release of his fifth studio album 'Mr. Experience' which debuted at number 26 on the ARIA Charts.
“A fun, baffling mystery of a performer, one who you’ll find yourself falling in love with from his charisma alone" – KEXP FM, Washington
Ella Haber Bio
The only woman featured on Worldwide FM’s Sydney broadcast, and having recently produced her first old out all-femme-identifying showcase featuring musicians, visual artists, poets and DJs, 20-year-old Ella Haber has worked toward her debut for 15 years.
Shocked by a hushed crowd reaction at her first public performance, Ella’s realisation her voice could halt and occupy an audience’s thoughts bleeds into all aspects of her life. With early demos of her debut EP, CLAY, reaching the ears of Brisbane-raised, London-based musician Jordan Rakei, the recent Ninja Tune signee - impressed with her vibrant songwriting and compositions - lent his production chops to the project, arranging and recording live instrumentation at Old Paradise Audio in London, while Ella worked on vocal recordings in Sydney.
In a genre, and society, where identity is increasingly scrutinised, Ella Haber resists, comfortable only in the confines of music composition. Challenging, with full colour love and intelligence, she's not letting anyone off lightly.
“Ella's timeless vocals and mature songwriting sensibility was the reason I wanted to work with her on this project. In a climate where artists often take shortcuts, Ella's determination and strong vision will make her stand out from the rest. It was a pleasure bringing her songwriting to life and I can't wait for the world to hear her music!” - Jordan Rakei
