Occasionally an artist stops you in your tracks and belts you right in the feels, and singer-songwriter James Bennett is certainly in the business of crafting tracks that get stuck in your head without overstaying their welcome. There's an effortless charm to Bennett's songs that carries over into real life when he talks about his music - a self-taught guitarist, a silver-tongued lyricist and a voice coated in rasping honey, it's no surprise or coincidence that a boy who grew up off the grid listening to uninterrupted Bob Dylan would end up conjuring dreamy folk magic. James is currently touring his new album 'Run with the Hunted' but in between his performing adventures he took a few moments to chat writing, recording and why you won't catch him writing a love song anytime soon.”

"James Bennett's 'Run With The Hunted' is a rewarding mix of acoustic & electric from the 60's Dylan mould. Bennett imbibes deep, bringing his own vision, experience & musicality to do the genre proud." 09/17”
