Welsh-Jamaican singer, Dionne Bennett is internationally known for her unique vocals, which draw influence from Afroculture music. She returns to inspire our jazz vocalists as they explore the richness of popular song repertoire from jazz and soul to Motown and reggae.
Dionne is internationally known for her unique and diverse vocal style that covers all Afro-culture influenced genres from blues, jazz to rhythm & blues, soul, reggae, drum bass funk, rock & roll, and beyond.
During her career she has performed throughout Europe, and has shared the stage with music legends such as Dr. John. She has released singles with renowned jazz pianist Jason Rebello, Grammy award winner saxophonist Tim Garland, and rock bands such as Super Furry Animals and “The Earth”. Dionne has recently started working for a sync music company ’Sonic Culture’ based in the USA and regularly writes toplines for TV programmes and adverts.
She is the chair of grassroots music organisation ‘Ladies of Rage’. This network was setup to support women in electronic music genres in Wales and has been highly successful in highlighting the imbalances of the industry when it comes to women in music and providing support and advocating for 50/50 line up and the inclusion of women when programming for gigs and events.
