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 former MTV VJ, 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 Album “A Sense of Urgency” (2014)
In November 2015 he released his second album “The Promise”.
Again this album contained the diversion of songwriting of Benny Hitt, which makes the album exciting and alternately.
A third release was made in 2017 in the form of a live studio album with his live-rock-band.
Named “The Essence to Remain Alive”.
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.
In 2018 Benny Hitt decided to minimalize his sound, and therefore reduced his live-band to a full electronic set up.
That being said; He released a 3 song EP called “Redemption”
The lyrics for “Redemption” are personal settlements with his past and a fresh start for the future.
Beside collaborations with Kerani, Benny Hitt had the privilege to work with
Thijs Lodewijk (Waylon, Wende, Stevie Ann)
Ruud de Groot (Kovacs)
Erwin Gielen (Intwine and Michael Katon)
