Brett Benowitz
Brett Benowitz
Brett Benowitz was born in Newport Beach, California and grew up in Cartersville, Georgia. As a kid he was drawn to the funky style of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the virtuous guitar playing of Jimi Hendrix. By age 13 he picked up the guitar and started writing music. When Brett was 20 he studied abroad in Israel and for the first time, he started playing his original songs in bars and clubs with his guitar duo band, Lechem v’Dagan (Bread and Grain). After returning to the states he recorded his first self-titled album dedicated to the loving memory of his late grandmother, Betty Benowitz, and after graduating college in 2011, he moved to NYC to pursue a career in music. While living in Brooklyn, Brett recorded two albums with his blues duo band, Sham, and a solo EP called “One”. Now Brett has completed his greatest work yet, Burn To Glow, a nine-song concept album recorded at Dubway Studios in NYC. Drawing from funk, soul, blues, and rock, Brett’s music is blue-eyed soul with groove and passion. With emotional lyrics, funky guitar licks, and powerful vocals most often compared to that of Jeff Buckley’s, Brett bares his soul in his songs with heartfelt messages and catchy melodies you’ll be humming in your sleep.
