Bio: Drawing from funk, soul, blues, and rock, Brett's music is ethereal 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. Recently Brett has released the music video for his new single, Make It Right which is currently the Number 1 Indie Track on New Music Weekly. Make It Right is available on all streaming platforms. @brettbenowitz

The Lobbyists
The Lobbyists
Formed in the winter of 2012 at The Flea Theater, The Lobbyists have crafted a distinctive harmony-driven sound that draws on folk, bluegrass, country, roots, and pop. Acoustic instrumentation, intricate harmonies, and inventive, collaborative songwriting combine to create a fresh sound at once unique and rooted in traditional folk music.

The band met while acting together in These Seven Sicknesses, a Drama Desk- nominated hit of the 2012 downtown New York theater scene. Tommy and Will, who met while playing and acting together at Yale, brought their musical partnership to The Flea, where the duo began playing together in the lobby of the theater as pre-show entertainment. They were quickly joined by Alex Grubbs on mandolin. Percussionist Tony Vo and Parisian singer Eloïse Eonnet soon rounded out the band, and The Lobbyists were born!

In summer 2013, in the subterranean chambers of Penn Station, Tommy was arrested mid-stride by the mellifluous strains of one Douglas Waterbury-Tieman's fiddle. After guest-fiddling for several months, Douglas officially joined the band winter 2014.

The Lobbyists released their debut EP, Our Home, in February 2013. It consists of five original songs and is available for download on iTunes and The Lobbyists' Bandcamp Page. Also available to stream and download is The Lobbyists' three-track demo record Songs from SeaWife, recorded by Geoff Strasser at Analogue Muse and released in March 2014. Songs from SeaWife features three songs from the concert play SeaWife, a piece the band is creating in collaboration with playwright Seth Moore, director Liz Carlson, and Naked Angels. More information about the project can be found on the band's website and at www.seawife.org.
