Singer-songwriter Joe Bennick presents new CD on the independent record label TIMEZONE records, which stands for innovation and variety of styles. "blossom and gloom" explores great emotional worlds in an exciting musical interplay.
It is the contrasts that give Joe Bennick's art its special appeal. On his second CD "blossom and gloom" he combines bright, radiant sounds with energetic lyrics and gentle poetry with powerful sound. Once again he shows himself to be a stylistically diverse artist, whose music is not only an expression of his poetry, but always an allusion to the contradictory nature of emotions. Already on the debut CD, Bennick had alluded to the supposed incompatibility of things with the title "In close distance". With "blossom and gloom" he once again creates listening experiences that invite you to immerse yourself.
In the musical implementation, the CD relies on the effect of the live experience without neglecting the technical possibilities of studio production. Electronic elements create sound effects, extra soundtracks create density and ensure strong musical expression. Joe Bennick brings the sound of the stage into the living room and creates an intimate listening experience with his songs, in which guitar and voice merge in the finest way.
Joe Bennick writes the music and lyrics for his songs himself. "blossom and gloom" is based on poems that range in content between standstill and change. What appears to be opposites lives in constant coexistence, the rational leaves room for emotion, the metaphorical and the literal coexist without creating breaks. In his songs, Joe Bennick reflects on familiar moments and phenomena, but also lets us catch a glimpse of his very personal emotional world.
Singer-songwriter Joe Bennick is also an author. His first novel was published in 2016, followed by his first volume of poetry in 2021. He is a regular guest on Germany's concert stages and has found his place in the singer-songwriter spectrum between folk-pop and acoustic-indie.
He combines his works with music in reading concerts and since 2020 he has been touring with "Bulli concerts" on the mobile stage of his VW bus.
