Delivering a one-two punch of anthemic pop writing and stadium-ready rock showmanship, clear parallels exist between Seattle artist Kitt Bender and such perennially relevant acts as Sting, U2, and Phil Collins.
After earning his degree in music technology and composition, Bender released three albums, touring nationally in their support, and gathering a loyal following on his YouTube channel. Despite his success, Bender was unsatisfied and took it upon himself to push the level of artistry forward in his latest EP, Out of My Mind. Independent in the extreme, each track is penned, each instrument performed, and the album as a whole was produced and engineered by Bender himself.
The first single, Little Black Dress, was released as a lyric video in late 2013, followed by a highly successful release party held at the Seattle Rendezvous in early 2014. The event took its theme from the single; the packed house came attired in a semi-formal mix of suits and little black dresses. Out of My Mind was released digitally on February 11th, 2014. Bender’s momentum continues this year with a packed calendar, anticipated new releases, and exciting collaborations.
Kitt’s first single for London Tone Music is called The One You Have and it showcases his remarkable vocals, powerful sense of melody and dynamic musicianship.
