Join Bennett Bay and his guitar for a one-night-only showcase of a selection of songs inspired by unique, memorable and transient spaces.
This gig is part of Touch Me, Touch Me Not, a multidisciplinary arts exhibition that brings together Singaporean artists and individuals with special needs to contemplate hostile architecture and social inclusion in Singapore. From 21 to 29 March at the SAD Bar at The Substation, there will be several special events and performances put up by artists and creatives from various disciplines: music, theatre, and themed artist dialogues/workshops. Bennett Bay has created a unique soundscape for the exhibition, that will be played before and after the gig.

About Bennett Bay
Bennett Bay is a musician based in Singapore whose sound is inspired by everyday occurrences, personal values and pastoral imageries. An acoustic guitar stands at the very core of his music, with flourishes of string quartets and brass trios in an attempt to keep the music as simple and natural as possible. His music harkens to Sigur Rós, Explosions In The Sky and Nick Drake.
Bennett most recently released his first EP, and third release overall, entitled 'Little Old Town', in January 2020. The 3-song EP was inspired by a solo trip to Japan in May of 2019, with each song representing a place in which Bennett visited. Bennett is currently working on a collaborative album with Krish Natarajan, co-founder of Patch and Punnet - a local theatre troupe that is part of W!LD RICE's Residency Programme. The album will see a collection of vignettes, fusing the art of Bennett’s artistry with Krish’s spoken word poetry. Set to be release later this year.
