Virginia Beach’s Bennett Wales and the Relief are living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in an ailing music industry.
The bands musical discoveries take flight with a compelling combination of rich pop layers and mixed stylings of rhythm and blues, rock and americana. By melding hook-filled melody within groove-able rhythms, Bennett Wales and the Relief show their ability to compact a vast array of influence and experience into a singular and distinct sound.
Together the quintet provides a vast amount of influences and deliver a broadened door of multiple genre stylings to music enthusiasts and listeners alike. Some of the top band influences consist of: Alabama Shakes, Chris Stapleton, The Meters, Little Feat, Black Joe Lewis and the Honey Bears, Vulfpeck and Black Angels.
Though Bennett Wales and his musicians have spent a lifetime saturated in music, song writing and performance, the release of the debut album, "Flood Without Water" is what marks their true musical introduction to the world. "Flood Without Water" was recorded in April at a Blue Ridge Mountain cabin retreat-turned-music studio with engineer, Chris Utley (Steven Tyler, John Mayer and more) of Benchmark Sound off Music Row in Nashville. As a very young band, they are experiencing a quickly blossoming career of festival bookings, one off shows and regional tours.
