Benoit EP Launch
with Shane Papatolicas

$10 presale, $15 at the door

Reflecting on his upcoming release of the five track EP, Fifty miles, Benoit remarks:

"My latest collection of songs are much closer to my heart than I expected. Five songs that sum up a journey in reconstructing what I once knew to be so secure, but left me empty, scrambling for a new direction. It does not stop there, or maybe it never does stop, whatever I may mean by that. But one thing I have found and hindsight has shown that there is indeed peace in insecurity, wholeness in pain and hope in sorrow."

Fifty miles marks the third release of Benoit since his humble beginnings in 2016 with the four track EP, Beam.

In 2017 Benoit and his backing group, The Mountain Sounds, joined together to record Canvas, a collection of songs that tell of a new direction, hope and pirates. As some may may be aware, due to unforeseen circumstances the launch of Benoit's second release, Canvas was regretfully cancelled last year. In light of this, The Mountain Sounds will join Benoit for a special closing set at the Fifty miles launch, to play through the songs of Canvas, as well as some new and borrowed songs.

With support from Shane Papatolicas, as well as The Mountain Sounds, this is sure to be a very special night of music at The Skylark Room.
