Benedict Trenches Short Info

Benedict Trenches is a fictional character. When we perform, we are that character. Imagine Damien Rice's 'O', The Mars Volta's 'Frances The Mute', Heck and Bright Eyes in a sonic mixer. To put a genre on it, we’d go for the somewhat niche (but soon to be mainstream!) Psych-Prog-Acoustic-Fiction Rock.

We are an ambitious band, and have been gathering momentum since our beginnings early last year with upcoming E.P track ‘Take Some Time’ spun by Dean Jackson on the BBC Introducing East Midlands show (13/02/2016), lead single ‘Blank Slate’ playlisted on Croydon Radio, plays on Way Out Radio and a multitude of Podcasts in the pipeline, extremely positive local media coverage - http://www.derbytelegraph.co.uk/Characterful-performance/story-28626181-detail/whatson/story.html '..both complex and beautiful’, - and a live show going from strength to strength, having played Nottingham's Horse Fest, Beeston's Party in the Park as well as headline shows at the Vic and the famous Running Horse.
