Benny Hitt is an Alternative-Pop artist from the Netherlands who after the release of his first Promo-album “A Sense Of Urgency” had the privilege to be opening-act for none other than Boy George during his Solo tour and for Belgium Cult New-wave band “Arbeid Adelt” Including Marcel Vanthilt.
The music of Benny Hitt is characterized by a very own sound, which refers to artists from present and past. He started his musical career as a drummer in Rock bands, which made it possible to work with Producer Oscar Holleman (Within Temptation, Krezip and Kovacs).
During this subsequent period, Benny developed himself more and more as a songwriter. And so the decision was made to no longer limit himself by just playing drums.
Benny chose to follow a new musical direction and armed with synthesizers, he released his first EP in early 2013, which was quickly followed up by his first Full-length Promo-album “A Sense of Urgency”. Thijs Lodewijk (Waylon, Wende, Stevie Ann) and Ruud de Groot (Kovacs) made contributions to this album.
In November 2015 he released the second album “The Promise”.
Again this album contains the diversion of songwriting of Benny Hitt, which makes the album exciting and alternately. Thijs Lodewijk (Synths), granted his contribution along with
Erwin Gielen (Intwine and Michael Katon) on the new album “The Promise”.
A new release for 2017 is a Live Studio Album, recorded at “Kerani Music Studio” with producer Arno op den Camp & Roel de Bock from “Icy Donuts Studio”
New Age composer Kerani, ZMR Music Award winner ‘Best Neo Classical New-Age album of 2014’ adds a classic-touch on the album with her piano.
“The Essence to Remain Alive” out now!
