THE NEW ALBUM FROM MR B.
Recorded in Nashville and produced by long time friend Douglas Romanow. Mr B is joined by guitarist John Jackson, (Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams). Drums are by Brian Owings, (Lucinda Williams, Doctor John). Another long time collaborator here is Jeff Tareila on stand up and electric bass. While DR plays Hammond organ and Rhodes. The studio is run by engineer Brian 'Brain' Harrison, a no nonsense fan of two inch tape and no slouch on the bass either having toured with Shelby Lynne among others.
"The team immediately gelled and all I had to do was play the songs and enjoy the ride... these boys aren't missin much and It was a privilege to work with them. DR had the vision to go to Nashville and as soon as we got to the chicken shack for the first dinner I knew it was the right call". MB

Songwriter. Poet. Minimalist. He's been called a lyrical laureate. A prophetic voice. He's been compared to Dylan, Cohen,
Waits, Burroughs and Reed. Mr Bennett certainly walks the road less travelled. A good inheritance for those who like to think while they listen.
